Mars Attacks by jasonedmiston Mars Attacks by jasonedmiston
Mars Attacks

Painting created for Fright Rags, used as a poster and tee design.
I was inspired by Ed Repka, and his awesome Megadeth cover art for this one!

Original: 18" x 24", acrylic on paper.

For the record, neither MEAT Clown, nor any of it's many subsidiaries have any official knowledge of extraterrestrials and are in no way affiliated with  The Great Alien Agenda. Having said that, this art is fantastic!

One of my favorite movies ! Your work is amazing, it's strong and colorful, the crazy apocalyptic atmosphere is perfectly rendered and the martian is particularly terrifying.

I think I should listen to Indian love call one more time and see if it actually explodes. . .

You know, the filmmakers used the sound of a duck's quack (played backwards) for the Martians' speech.

really? I didn't know that trivia. Though I think they'd be making a "Kaak" sound.

Oh man I loved watching this movie, I was a little afraid of it when I was a kid. I thought it actually happened xD I remembered I stayed inside that weekend so I wouldn't get blasted by their ray gun. 

This is absolutely amazing work! The colors are amazing and everything is just perfect. It makes me remember my childhood. Fantastic job^^

Truly under-appreciated movie. If people understood that it was a parody of Ed Wood style movies maybe they'd get it.
