The Art-O-Bot is back and it’s taking on one artist at a time. Let’s start up the bot…
We met Jason on the Sunday at FanExpo while we were waiting to interview a notable TV celebrity (rhymes with Lictor Vucas). Afterwards, he shook our hands and told us we had a great interview. Later that day while surfing artist alley we stumbled upon his table, which was riddled with fantastic art. He promptly stood up and declared to his wife, “These were the guys I was telling you about.” As it turns out, interviewers are very susceptible to flattery. But this isn’t the reason we interviewed Jason. We interviewed him because he is a fantastic illustrator, that and he emailed us about being featured on the Art-O-Bot.
Jason has been a commercial illustrator since the mid-90’s. Creating work for advertising, editorial, packaging and publishing clients around the world. Edmiston’s style is quite varied, featuring everything from realistic figures to exaggerated caricatures. Jason’s pop culture aesthetic has a heavy influence on his work, from retro styled advertisements and famous movie monsters to modern pulp heroes and comic book characters.
Now on to the goods. Personally I would love nothing more then a series of commissions from Jason recreating famous comic book covers.
Be sure to check out more of Jason’s work at his official website.
Come back next time when we feature another talented local artist on the ART-O-BOT.
