The Art of Frankenstein : Noah Klocek

Pursued by agitated villagers, Frankenstein’s Monster is stopped in his tracks by a little girl. She just wants to play with the friendly-looking giant.

Over the last decade, New Jersey-born artist Noah Klocek has devoted his considerable talent to animation, working at ILM, PDI/Dreamworks and, currently, as an Art Director for Pixar. Recent credits include production art for Ratatouille (2007), WALL-E (2008) and Up (2009).

The Frankenstein illustration reflects Klocek’s personal illustration work, with meticulous character design and atmospheric backgrounds rendered with an impressionist’s eye for light and open space drenched in color. Klocek’s blog is a wonder to behold.
