Weird Art Month: Ed Repka

By Sam Reeve

I always feel compelled to feature super un-Christmasy art on the last few days leading up to the holiday, and Ed Repka’s art fits the bill. Known as the “king of thrash metal art”, he created some of the most iconic metal album covers and merch designs of all time. He’s worked for Megadeth, Toxic Holocaust, Municipal Waste, and Death, just to name a few. Since 2002 Repka has been the head of art direction for the National Entertainment Collectibles Association.

  1. Hell yeah! Repka. I once heard an art nerd friend lamenting about how Repka has started going digital, but I still think his stuff is cool as hell.

    • I got a little bummed when I saw his facebook album of digital work…but it was still pretty awesome as far as digital stuff goes.
