Monsters of Rock from Jason Edmiston

Best part of Comic-Con is checking in with my favorite artists and seeing what they've been up to. Jason Edmiston is a regular on Boing Boing -- a virtuoso of the grotesque monster illustration, who may be best known for his brilliant Cereal Monsters. Yesterday at his booth, I was treated to a look at his Basil Wolverton-esque "Monsters of Rock" posters, which can be had in limited edition prints from Etsy at $40 per.

Monster Mash: horrific composite of Universal Monsters' Big Four

We've covered Jason Edmiston's genius monster illos here before, but this one deserves special attention. His "Monster Mash" comes from an alternate universe where Doctor Frankenstein has gotten a little enthusiastic with the needle. It's ghoulishly delightful. Spotted today at New York Comic-Con. $60 for a giclee print.

Dr. Frankenstein has been working on a little project in his free time. Much like Voltron, the big Universal 4 come together to make the ultimate creature. Mwah-ha-ha-haa!!!

Limited edition of 100, signed and numbered 17" x 22" giclee print, with archival inks on acid-free paper.

Planet of the Apes painting by Jason Edmiston

I'm old school when it comes to Planet of the Apes. If they aren't wearing tunics or padded vests, I'm not interested. That's why this painting, entitled "Trophies" -- which depicts a trio of proud gorilla hunters posing over a pile of Boing Boing comment trolls -- is a winner in my book. This masterpiece is by Jason Edmiston. See more of Jason's work here. Read the rest

I'm not sure that a blog is the best format for storytelling, but I'm going to give it a go. Let me know what you think in the comments.

After the jump, I will tell you the amazing TRUE story of Bozo and the Santa Claus Horror Show!
