2016's almost over, and you know what that means: it's time to announce this year's final Mondo Gallery showcase.
This year, the Mondo crew's going out with an entire show dedicated to classic Nickelodeon programming (y'know, the stuff some of us broken-down olds watched back in the day, when the world was a far more simpler, less terrifying place).
Here's the press release:
Mondo Gallery Presents:

Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam said "Nickelodeon was a huge part of my childhood. It represented everything cool and rebellious, and parents didn't know anything about it. We worked with a number of great artists to pay homage to some of the channel's most influential programming. We hope you have as much fun seeing it as we had making it."
"Thrilled to be part of the Nickelodeon show with Mondo. I grew up watching Nickelodeon when my family first got cable in the early ‘80s, with shows like Pinwheel and You Can't Do That on Television. Always wanted to get slimed for saying 'I don't know?' or food poisoning from Barth's Burgery," said artist Dave Perillo.
And here's a look at several of the posters that will be available at the show:
Rocko's Modern Life by Dave Perillo
Ren And Stimpy by Florian Bertmer
TMNT (Zen) by Sachin Teng
Like it says on the card, the A-Nick-Nick-Nick-Nick-N-Nick-Nick-Nick Nickelodeon Show opens at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX on Friday, December 9th at 7PM, and will remain open for purchases (and viewings!) through December 17th. We'll see you there!
