Interview with Artist Jason Edmiston

 

 

In early March 2015 I flew to Austin, Texas for the opening night of ‘Eyes Without A Face,’ a gallery show of new works from painter Jason Edmiston hosted by Mondo. The show was gallery’s first show of all original works with no prints available of any of the artwork. Edmiston created over 100 portraits, each focused on the eyeline of a major player in pop culture history.

A few days before he was set to fly to Austin and prep the show, Edmiston took the time to chat with me over the phone for an interview that covered the show, the importance of caring for your fans, and his recent collaborations with artists Mike Mitchell, Jock, and Daniel Danger.

Mondo Presents ‘Maniac Cop 2’ LP

Mondo's 'Maniac Cop 2' Soundtrack

In early 2015 Mondo continued their incredible list of film soundtracks with composer Jay Chattaway’s score for the 1990 film ‘Maniac Cop 2.’

My task was to interview Chattaway for the liner notes about the film and his relationship with the film’s writer / director William Lustig.

Chattaway is a Hollywood veteran whose work is most recognized in the television universe of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise, but I’m still a sucker for his work in the 1985 film adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Silver Bullet.’

The package was design by the talented Canadians of Phantom City Creative.

For those interested, the record can be picked up HERE.
