Jason Edmiston is an artist who still does things the old school way. He paints in acrylic, on watercolor paper or wood panel. His style often has a bit exaggeration with a hint of humor in it.
He is a portraitist know for his up- close takes on the characters from Mad Max, Batman, Rocky, Guardians of the Galaxy, Disney Villains, Universal Monsters and Classic Horror Villains.
The foursome depicted here serves as a fine introduction to his work.
Edmiston obviously has a fondness for The Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th oeuvre. That is probably why Neco toys hired Edmiston to do the artwork for their Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees and his mom Pamela Voorhees action figure collection.
The gruesome villainy on display is lightened with a good dose of visual humor: whether it is the hint that Jason might be burying himself, the vanity of Freddy showing his chest of souls, Sackheads Jason's gruesome candlelabra, or his mom's overheated murderous smile.
