Frankenfun!

Along with the picture of Nine charging through the castle towards the kitchens, this particular piece is another of my favourites from the "Frankenstein's Cat" picture book. I was mighty pleased with the paint job in general on the book, but for some reason this particular "shot" was the most fun. Don't know whether it was the playing around with the stormcloud effects or just the fact that the drybrushing built up so easily. Composition as much as anything worked well- within the picture book the Monster is reaching over the spine and into the text on the opposite page, a brain in a jar just out of reach!

As I find the other images of my fave pics from the book I'll put them up.

In Other News...

Just spoken with the delightful Harry Saylor, owner of Orbit Gallery in NJ, who has sold another BITENECK BEATNIKS painting, "Bad Madam" I believe. Plus apparently someone has snaffled a set of MONSTER MOB lithographs. Good on you, Harry! Hope we can get more paintings through Orbit, as we're looking to try and arrange a solo show there sometime Spring/Summer next year. It's in a terrific location, overlooking Manhattan from the Jersey docks.

They look like they would be fun guest to have at a party. I can hear Monster Mash playing already.

it did. The only way we could get the bloody thing back up was to reapply the template, which meant losing the links. He'll put them back at some point, but I have him hard at work decorating the bedroom at the moment...
