Dork Art: Mondo's Oblivion Vinyl
Mondo just announced that they'll be releasing the Oblivion soundtrack on Vinyl come April 26th. I haven't dipped into Mondo's vinyl collection yet , and I'm not really sure this is the place to start. I did attempt to score their Drive LP but I was too slow on the shopping cart clicking. You know the drill, follow their Twitter closely and cross your fingers.
Killian Eng supplies the art, a touch reminiscent of Mondo's John Carter print. Hope that's not an indicator of the film's final product. Matt's got a lot of hope riding on Oblivion. A new wave of big Sci-Fi films could be made or broken on the back of Joseph Kosinski's latest venture.
Here's what Eng had to say about his piece:
"When I was given the honor to create artwork for the Oblivion soundtrack, I wanted to convey the feeling of a world that was left behind; a place full of traces and remnants of a civilization long gone. An environment that truly makes the person exploring it feel small is a theme I often come back to in my artwork. For the front cover I wanted to describe this in a peaceful way. The warm colors of a sunset, or sunrise, adds an air of tranquility, providing the image a nice balance against the sharp, dark silhouettes in the foreground."
