Jason Edmiston Depicts Music Legends as Psychedelic Monsters

Those familiar with Jason Edmiston already know he’s the king of rendering outrageous monster images, but rather than simply painting Frankenstein’s monster or Dracula over and over again, he’s trying his hand at celebrity portraiture. That’s right, Edmiston illustrated a series featuring everyone’s most beloved hard rockers, from Angus Young to Tommy Lee, and the results are exactly what you’ve come to expect from the talented artist. Did I fail to mention he’s painted them all as grotesquely engaging mutants?

Jason Edmiston aptly titled his zany series ‘The Monsters of Rock,’ giving horrific traits like claws, multiple eyeballs, fish scales, slimy green skin, tentacles and other shocking body parts to famous personalities. Somehow, I think all of these musicians would appreciate the insane tributes Edmiston has created for them.
