Frankenstein - New York Dolls

I've got tickets to see the New York Dolls in London this November so I'm using that as an excuse to share this video of them performing their classic "Frankenstein". I always thought that sadly departed bassist Arthur Kane would make a fantastic monster in silver platform boots.

"I've Got A Rock 'N' Roll Heart" by Wackystuff, Victoria, BC, Canada (Collage)

When I send out information about this project to people, I sometimes get asked, especially by artists and illustrators, what is in it for them. I thoroughly understand this reaction as that is how they make their living and their time is money. I try to explain that mail art is about giving your art away which not everyone is keen to do. Anyway to cut a long story short, I have uploaded the back of Wackystuff's postcard that came with his portrait. He has been giving his art away for many years and his philosophy on mail art encapsulates what "A Patchwork Of Flesh" is all about.

House Of The Wolf Man trailer

I discovered this on another blog today and thought I would share it in case you've missed out. It is released in the USA in October I believe, I don't reckon it will get a cinematic release in the UK.
It looks like a very affectionate homage to all things Universal in the monster department, even starring Ron Chaney, Lon Chaney Jr's grandson.

Back from holiday

Back from a week on the very sunny Isle Of Wight, plenty of top quality Frank art waiting for me when I got home which I will share with you over the next few days.
Here is a natural monster I made on the beach using sand, seaweed and pebbles.

I bought a cool tin on Monster Bandages which you monster maniacs might appreciate, here are some photos, shame the puffy sticker free prize wasn't Frank but never mind.
