Welcome to the grand finale of 2016’s Monster Month!
As I have said here before, I love drawing Frankenstein’s monster a LOT. When trying to figure out why, it most likely stems from how much I loved the drawings the recently departed great Jack Davis used to do. His had such an ease about them, and a quiet grace amid his flurry of cross-hatching. So maybe each time I draw good ol’ Frankie, it’s a way for me to personally remember Jack.
This year’s Monster Month opened with a loose ink drawing of a more traditional view of the original zombie, so for our grand finale, we are ending with a modern version of him. With the hipster movement going on these days, I started wondering what ol’ Frankie might look like had he been put together with parts from this era. Perhaps he’d look a little something like this…
In case you are curious, this is a completely traditional drawing. Inked with a sepia colored ink, and some white & blue gouache paint in my new Strathmore Toned Tan Paper sketchbook! Thought he’d be a good one to start the book.
Well, thanks for following along with my Monster Month posts again this year. I always enjoy drawing them, and hope you enjoy this October tradition of mine. Feel free to check out all my previous monster drawings from years past by CLICKING HERE!
