DH Frankenstein book by MrSoles DH Frankenstein book by MrSoles
I was talking with an editor from Dark Horse at the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, Oregon last October and she ended up giving me a copy of the Bernie Wrightson illustrated Frankenstein book DH published a while ago to see what I could do with it. The book is amazing and being a huge Wrightson and Mary Shelley fan, I have I have coveted it for some time. Here are the results.

The cover is sculpted in epoxy putty. I wanted something organic and yet unidentifiable. The teeth at the bottom of the book are real wolves' teeth. The skull on the front is a cold cast marble fetus skull. It seemed appropriate and I liked the contrast with the dark cover.

Absolutely marvelous. Love the subtle horror of it. (I think I might have antiqued the skull at least a little bit: it looks a little too clean, too pristine, against the rest, as if it were added years later.)

I was going for that pristine quality. I give it a nice polish with steel wool. I thought through the tactile as well as visual qualities of the book. The darker textures are a lot rougher while the marble skull is quite smooth.

*nodnod* Artist's perogative. The image one person might see certainly can differ from another's. :-)
