Frankenstein Jam

The heavily pierced laboratory Monster, by Andy Kuhn, is just one of several Frankenstein portraits posted this week on Comic Twart, a collective sketch blog where participating artists create images based on a theme. The subject last week was Frankenstein’s Monster.

The contributions include Mitch Gerads' atmospheric scene of a Karloff Frankenstein beset by pitchforks and torches, and a humorous digital portrait by Mike Hawthorne, with a link to a step-by-step ‘making of’, showing how the illustration evolved.

The moody, expressionistic Monster seen here at left is by Declan Shalvey, who illustrated the graphic novel adaptation of Mary Shelley’s story, written by Jason Cobley, for Classical Comics in 2008.

Be sure to click around and visit the individual artists’ blogs and websites. There’s tons of great art to discover.

With thanks to Quinton.
