The Bride strikes a Janet Jackson pose in this wonderful illustration by Jared Moraitis.
Purposefully referencing the iconic Rolling Stone cover by photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the image was commissioned by Ben Scrivens of Fright Rags for use on a limited edition t-shirt — no longer available — in a special fund-raising case (details here) during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this past October. The piece is called We Belong Alive!.
Artist Moraitis has posted his sketches and color tests for the illustration here, along with one variant featuring the owner — Guess Who! — of those well-placed hands.
THE ART OF THE BRIDE SERIES
Her entire film career runs barely twelve minutes of screen time, yet The Bride is one of the best-known and most celebrated characters in film history. In this, her 75th anniversary year, The Bride continues to engage and inspire new generations of artists.
Starting here and now, and straight on to Christmas morning, I’ll be posting a new Bride of Frankenstein illustration every day. Ten artists, ten interpretations, ten unique visions of The Bride!
