The Badass Tattoo Art of “Atomahawk” Illustrator Ian Bederman [15 Images]

Ian Bederman BMO Adventure Time

Tattoo artist Ian Bederman’s take on BMO from “Adventure Time.” Bederman is the artist behind the Heavy Metal title “Atomahawk.”

We’re pretty psyched about Atomahawk, our latest standalone comic book. (In fact, we previewed it in the current issue of Heavy Metal, our Sci-Fi Special.) The Atomahawk story springs from the mind of Donny Cates, who’d previously brought us Interceptor and The Paybacks. We can’t say that Atomahawk artist Ian Bederman has that sort of comic-book bona fides. That’s because Bederman works by day as a tattoo artist, and a damn good one. His work is distinctive, and often has a storytelling feel to it. Cosmic cats hissing, aliens abducting, space knights toting severed heads, menacing cyborgs with brains floating in jars. He’s created his own galaxy, centered on his Austin, Texas headquarters and expanding to the outer reaches, inked onto the skin of his living, breathing, devoted human canvases. We’re proud as hell to have this kind of groundbreaking vision under the Heavy Metal banner, and impressed that Atomahawk imagery has already begun appearing on skin:
