Electric Frankenstein Poster COLOURED by Huwman Electric Frankenstein Poster COLOURED by Huwman
I've always noticed that the band "Electric Frankenstein" has poster art done by some of the VERY best lowbrow/horror/comic book/kustom kulture- type artists in the world, so I was extremely pleased to be asked to have a go! I am still trying to go faster and not worry about "perfect" lines so this is a little sloppier and looser than some of my older stuff but I'm really enjoying not being so "OCD" about the inking process - and it IS going much more quickly. Anyhow, I was just left to interpret the name "Electric Frankenstein" any way I wanted and I guess I must have started thinking of "The Brain that Wouldn't Die", "They Saved Hitler's Brain", and other severed head B-movie classics, so this is the result. I hope you like it.

ART NERD DETAILS: Inked with a Raphael 8408, #3 brush and Speedball Super Black India Ink on smooth finish Strathmore Bristol board. Coloured in Photoshop. I designed and drew the "Frankenstein" lettering but the "Electric" font is not by me.

THANKS FOR LOOKING!

And right back at you! I really liked the drawing and then I saw a Rondo Hatton sculpture and said, 'Okay, that means I have to watch this guy!' Ha, ha. Awesome.

Funny, I saw this picture and was going to ask if it was for the band. I know those guys because I live in the same area as them. Very cool work

This came out sick.  Been ranting for years that they should remake The Brain That Wouldn't Die.  Even tried writing my own script. Tight work.

Thanks! I'm always undecided about those remakes of the "classics" since they often wreck 'em. Mind you, if they'd let real fans like you or me handle it, it might be different than when some clueless Hollywood "suit" does it. Anyhow, thanks for the fave and the comment. I really appreciate it!

I realized the other day that I am a very solitary artist: I've hardly ever drawn anything written by anyone else or had anything I've written drawn by others. I also don't think I have ever inked anyone else's pencils or had my pencils inked by another artist, either! If I ever did collaborate, there's no one I'd rather have involved than you though! I am definitely going to be bugging you for a pinup page featuring characters from my "Genreville" comic - assuming I live to get the 3rd issue done! :) I really have to get going on #2. It's partly penciled but lots more to go!

Great job, there's such a subtle (well, c'mon, how can Frankenstein playing electric guitar not be subtle), no but seriously, this really subtle style to the colouring, it's not underdone, it works really well with the greens/oranges and the touch of highlights.
