Original Concept Work For ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ Released

Artwork by Jared Marantz

If you were a fan of the second season of American Horror Story: Asylum then odds are the visuals really stuck out as opposed to the first season which was more so based in reality. The second season took place in an asylum and resulted in a few disturbing albeit real images of what would be patients in a 1960s ward. For the first time ever, jarring original conceptual art has been released for the season, which features character favorites like Bloody Face and lovable “pinhead” Pepper.

Artist Jared Marantz released his art which was the inspiration behind some of the experiments done on the patients, and the visual look of the patients themselves. About creating the art Marantz said:

“This is one of my absolute favorite projects to work on. I’m a big fan of the show and I love working on these designs for Christian Tinsley and Ryan Murphy. Coming up with the look and feel of these characters is a collaborative effort and I love how the project pushes Design further every year. Asylum took a lot of work, much more than season one. There was so much to do and it was a lot of fun. This show just had so much going on I can’t even imagine what Murphy will come up with for next season.”

As we previously reported the third season of American Horror Story will be different than the last season, with new characters played by most of the same actors. Murphy said the next season will take on a younger feel with a star-crossed lovers theme.
