Any artist blessed with parents who support their creative passions and offbeat career choice should be thankful for their good fortune, and parents who actually want to be a part of the process are fewer still.
But one lucky guy has a dad who genuinely loves playing roles and posing for his son's illustrations, and their creative collaboration has led to the creation of some really cool looking artwork!
Illustrator Jason Edmiston creates creepy renditions of pop culture characters like Freddy Krueger, Ming the Merciless and The Joker, using posed pics of his father as reference:
"When I have a concept sketch for a piece worked out, I pop over to my parents’ house and get my dad to dress up like the character while I set up lighting to match the scene. He’s very accommodating, and willing to pose in all sorts of ways, and always manages to get into character. He never says no to a request and is always enthusiastic. I have yet to meet a better model.
