mondo: wise little hen by strongstuff mondo: wise little hen by strongstuff
here's my latest project for mondotees, a 5-color silkscreen celebrating the first appearance of donald duck in "the wise little hen"!

i've been really, really excited to show this one off. watching these old shorts (in the name of research) with my son has been incredible. the fact that he responds to them the way that he does speaks to their long-lasting quality. i am consistently amazed by the craftsmanship of early disney animation and love that he and i can share these amazing cartoons together.

even though donald is a major character in "the wise little hen", he's hardly the star. we chose, however to spotlight him on this poster because of the timeless character that he'd become in so many disney productions that followed this one.

poster specs:
• 5 color screenprint on cougar natural 100# cover stock
• size: 18" x 24"
• limited edition of 325

in-store sale info:
• wed, may 4
• time: 5 pm CST
• where: mondotees store, austin, TX

online sale info:
• thu, may 5
• time: random
• where: mondotees
