See Even More Amazing 'Eyes Without a Face' Art by Jason Edmiston

A few weeks ago we ran a post featuring some of the artwork from Canadian artist Jason Edmiston that he made for a show Mondo is hosting called "Eyes Without a Face". It features prints created by Edmiston in 3:1 aspect ratio, inspired by the field of vision of a standard rearview mirror in a car, showing only the eyes of pop culture characters of all kinds. It's an amazing, amazing show with some incredible work and tons of favorites. If I had the money, I would've bought a few of these. And the originals are now on sale via Mondo for those who do have the cash. In addition to the batch we featured a few weeks ago, I've tossed up a few other favorites from the show this weekend (including the Medusa one that involves a mirror). Take a look!
Here are some of my recent favorites including: Batman + Bane, Jaws, Sully, Totoro and Caesar, of course.
Here's the eyes of Medusa piece, but it's setup to be viewed through a mirror in the gallery. Just perfect.
And lastly a small batch of photos showing Jason Edmiston + a look at the full Mondo gallery in Austin.
For more on the show and to buy prints, head over to Mondo now. You can also read our original post and see some of the designs we featured then (showing the eyes of Jason Voorhees, E.T., Catwoman, HAL 9000 from 2001, Elle from Kill Bill, Slimer from Ghostbusters and the monster from Big Trouble in Little China). SlashFilm also points out that "to make things interesting, [Edmiston] did each painting in actual size" so the King Kong eyes are huge, and Lego eyes are tiny. It's kind of a brilliant show, one of the best ever put on by Mondo, and I really do love everything about it (and most of the work, even if I'm not that big of a fan of the movie). The ones I would buy: both of the Daft Punk visors, and Sully from Monsters Inc (it's gone now).
