G.I. Joe art recommendation

Post by DirtbagSailor »

Looking for a artist recommendations to commission a few pieces in the classic G.I. Joe card arts style.

Do you know of anyone who would match up well for this sort of thing?

Jason Edmiston is a pretty great pro commercial artist who has done spoof card art before in the flavour of GI Joe - I have a print lying around somewhere of Jason Voorhees done up as a GI Joe card back figure. He does a lot of package artwork for collectible toys these days.

Not sure if he’d take on a private commission or not, and he probably wouldn’t be cheap to hire for it either... but he would kick *SQUEE*! If you google “Jason Edmiston artist” and scroll through images, you will probably see the GI Jason spoofs I’m talking about. He also did a killer Cobra Commander painting/poster once as well.

You could try David Michael Beck, he did some nice painted covers on the Image Joe run in the early 2000's. Here is a link to his art dealer:
