Antone's and blues. Bridges and bats. Dirty Sixth and shots. Willie and weed. Matthew and bongos. Franklin and long, long lines. Some combinations just scream "Austin!" It's time to add another to the list, with Mondo Gallery announcing that its next show will be a tribute to Richard Linklater.

Every year, just in time for SXSW, the gallery organizes what often turns out to be its biggest limited edition print show. In 2014, it was their magical Disney exhibition, following on from 2013's epic Game of Thrones collection. 2015 saw hyper-realist Jason Edmiston's huge solo show, and now it's time to celebrate the man behind Slacker, Boyhood, and the upcoming SXSW opening night film Everybody Wants Some, with "No Longer / Not Yet: A Tribute to Richard Linklater".

The show features Mondo regulars including Phantom City Creative, Jay Shaw, Kevin Tong, and Australian art collective We Buy Your Kids, taking on a slate of titles including Dazed and Confused, Waking Life, and Bernie. Calling the filmmaker "one of Texas' premier storytellers," Mondo co-founder/creative director Mitch Putnam wrote, "No director's films feel more aesthetically tied to Austin, TX than those of Richard Linklater."

Returning the glowing compliments, Linklater said of Austin's world famous print house: "Mondo has reinvigorated cinematic poster design. It's a big honor to have their trailblazing design team reimagine the art that accompanies my films."

"No Longer / Not Yet: A Tribute to Richard Linklater" runs March 12-15 at the Mondo Gallery, 4115 Guadalupe. More details at www.mondotees.com.
