FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER






















I just HAD to twart this week. A couple of years ago i did a graphic novel adaptation of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, so am well versed in both the story and the character of Frankenstein's monster. No bolts in the temple, no square head and no electricity!

This one got out of hand; started out as a basic drawing; felt i'd blacked in too many areas so went back in with white ink, but had no clean brush handy so just used my fingers. 'Things got a little out of control', like the tag-line to a bad 80s action comedy.

Awesome! I love how I can;t tell where you use white and where you used black in some areas. Beautiful framing as well.
