The Posters of Frankenstein : The Bride, by Martin Ansin



This gorgeous, new, limited edition Bride of Frankenstein poster by Martin Ansin went on sale today, and promptly sold out!

The Bride’s image was inspired by anatomical drawings and a line from the movie: “The human heart is more complex than any other part of the body”. Note the heart at the top of the poster, with the semi-circle of dots representing the heartbeat monitor seen in the film. Characters appear in medallions, with a heartbroken Monster in the middle.

The poster was screen printed, using metallic inks. A glow-in-the-dark version has the silver and gold colors inverted.

Artist Hansin also created posters for The Wolfman, Phantom of the Opera and Metropolis, all on display on his excellent website.

The poster was produced by Austin, Texas-based Mondotees.

These are too too brilliant. Finally something worthwhile has come out of my state.

That girl is still smokin' hot, even when you can see through her cheek to her wisdom teeth.

I'm curious about the licensing of those characters. Is this an official Universal product for an event/screening?

Holy shit, this guy's stuff is fucking amazing. Sorry for the language, but I can't help it.

And yes, like Ron above, I'm curious--is he licensing these Universal posters? I'd love to do that myself!

Ron, Rob: Yes, this is a licensed product. There's an oval Universal Monsters badge at lower right.

Ron: This was done as a limited edition art poster for collectors and not for any special event or screening or, for that matter, for the Bride's 75th Anniversary this year.

Arbo: That's what you say to all the girls.

Wow. I love that poster! Great design work.

I think I like the silver and copper variant found at Mondotees even better.

Belle Dee said...

Just was looking at your blog page, talking about the Martin Ansin poster, last summer. I saw that your header has his last name misspelled. You have it as Hansin. Might want to amend that. :)

Thanks, Anon. Typo corrected.
