It’s not scheduled for release until fall of 2011, but artist/author Gris Grimly posted online via Twitter another drawing for his upcoming illustrated Frankenstein book. It may seem simple, but, in Grimly’s words, “I look at this image and see this sole icon representing the overall tone of the book.“
If you’ve seen any of his work, then you know we’re in for a treat once the project is complete. As for what that “tone” might be that he mentioned, Gris explains in his blog it’s all about “the dark dingy background, the harsh black strokes of the title, the vibrant punk colors reminiscent of films like Re-Animator and Return of the Living Dead and the cartoonish skeletal hand; All of these elements are twisted and assembled together to create the creature that is…Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein.
In case you missed it when it first came out, below is the first painting for the book. This artwork will accompany a quote from Paradise Lost in the front:
To mould Me man? Did I solicit thee
From darkness to promote me?-
