Episode 110.2: Sandbox Interview with Contemporary Legend, Artist & Illustrator Jason Edmiston
Jason is that unique combination of skill, experience and and humbleness that you don't see everyday. To say this interview was our pleasure is an absolute understatement. Today we talk with Jason Edmiston - the man behind 'Eyes Without a Face' - about his upcoming gallery show, his transition into his current work and the video games that keep him sane along the way.
A commercial illustrator since 1996, Jason has created work for advertising, editorial, packaging and book publishing clients internationally. He is a traditional artist, painting in acrylic on watercolour paper or wood panel. His style ranges from realism to exaggeration, usually emphasizing the figure, and a certain degree of humour or caricature. Jason is often asked to emulate a specific genre of illustration, such as movie posters, pulp covers or retro style advertising. His fondness for pop culture, especially movies and toys often creep into his work.
