The Art of Frankenstein : Jeff Heermann

Here’s the 1910 Edison Frankenstein program cover recast as an engaging illustration by San Francisco-based artist Jeff Heermann.

Though the film was given a graphic novel adaptation, cartoonists’ takes on Charles Ogle’s expressive Monster remain relatively rare. Heermann’s sketchy brushwork suits Charles Ogle’s wildman Monster well.

Check out Heermann’s website, blog and flickr stream.
