The Art of Frankenstein : Lou Romano

This moonlit Frankenstein by Lou Romano was inspired by the beloved monster rally movie The Monster Squad (1987).

Romano produces wonderful retro-modern paintings, often with fantasy or horror themes. He also creates abstract science fiction art that recalls the work of Richard Powers.

Romano’s film credits read like an animator’s dream resumé. As an illustrator and designer, he has worked on such titles as The Iron Giant (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), The Incredibles (2004) and Up (2009). As a voice actor, he contributed to Cars (2006), WALL-E (2008), and he was Linguini, the human hero of Ratatouille (2007).

The set of five Monster Squad paintings are up on Romano’s superlative blog, otherwise brimming with eye-popping art.
