Album artist Aaron Crawford
is one of those guys who paints stuff you either love or hate. Personally, I’m a huge fan of his twisted art styles that seem to capture the most deformed, disgusting, vile, putrid abominations this side of Midian.
Well, the man is back with a painting of Toxie, the always lovable hero from The Toxic Avenger series! Not only is it a great painting of the iconic mutant, but Troma master Lloyd Kaufman himself gave it two thumbs up!
Aaron Crawford: “The Toxic Avenger is one of my favorite Troma movies. It’s considered a classic, and the perfect story of the nerd who’s bullied turned vigilante superhero monster murderer, mangling everything in his path!
Melvin, (who later becomes Toxie) was dancing around in a pink polka dotted suit with his mop RIGHT BEFORE he fell into the toxic sludge.
This is my tribute painting to that scene. MELVIN!”
