It seems that plenty of people are visiting here everyday now which is mighty fine. Some beautiful work is coming in from artists and illustrators which I am really grateful for. What I would also really like to see is more portraits from amateurs, kids or those of you who never draw at all. Every single portrait I receive will be uploaded. Share with us your vision of what the monster looks like, don't be scared to create something. Scare us with your creation instead.
Todays offering is from my neighbour and fellow blogger Mondo Dave, we share very similar tastes in movies, comics, music and much more. So today in a feast of mutual back slapping, Dave's punk rockin' new creation "Potential H Bomb" is featured here and I am choosing today's tunes at his consistently fantastic music blog Planet Mondo
Something a little different today. I didn't get any cards from the postie this morning but I did get a cool Universal Frankenstein Monster figure that I won on Ebay. I took a few photos in the garden and have done some amateur remixes using a variety of Photoshop effects.
Here is a new painting I have just finished of Frankenstein's Monster called "A Patchwork Of Flesh". I will be submitting it for the Beecroft Gallery's Open Exhibition this summer in Southend. It's not ATC size but I thought I'd upload it here for you Frankophiles to look at. I used spraypaint and stencil, acrylics, Sharpie, white pencil, watercolours and collage.
I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.
I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.
I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.
If you are reading this and would like to get involved, please send a portrait to:
A Patchwork Of Flesh 45 Silversea Drive Westcliff on Sea Essex SS0 9XD United Kingdom
Each card I receive will be uploaded here to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
