Ed Mironiuk was born on Dec 11th. His singular and strange nature quickly convinced

his parents that one child would be enough, as they never had another. He began drawing

as soon as he could grip a pencil and put it to paper. Edgar Rice Burroughs, Frazetta, sci fi and

comics consumed his time and encouraged his imagination. By the age of 12 he discovered

Alberto Vargas through an inherited collection of musty Playboys, perhaps the only

pre-pubescent to truly appreciate pornography on an esoteric level. This early admiration of

the female form would serve as the foundation of his later artwork. After high school,

Ed went straight to his muse – NYC’s East Village. After 4 years at Parson's School of Design

he came away with a BFA. While toiling away on animation jobs, he fed his head a

steady diet of black metal, Russ Meyer films, HP Lovecraft, latex fashion, body modifications

and Japanese deviancies. These subcultures stewed  and eventually merged with his

love of pinups, forming the basis of his unique brand of art; a hybrid of pop trash and fetish

culture kissed by Dr. Moreau himself. Ed’s illustration work has been featured in everything

from The LA Times to Pawn Stars.
