The Art of Frankenstein : Alex Kirwan

Alex Kirwan is an art director, storyboard artist and writer for animation. His work includes the character design for Nickelodeon’s My Life as Teenage Robot (2003-2005).

As a painter, his art often references horror and cult movies with stylized portraits of such characters as Barbarella, Gort and Robbie The Robot.

Kirwan’s eye-popping, funky and elegant takes on The Bride of Frankenstein and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein were painted for the Burning Brush Show in 2000.

I just found you through HorrorBlips. I asked Santa for the original 1818 Oxford paperback for Christmas (along with The Annotated Dracula) that I'm determined to start reading at any moment!
