Continuing to fill up my Inktober sketchbook, I decided that the next creature that had to feature was Frankenstein’s Monster. In addition to Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ being one of my favourite novels – and one I taught several times – James Whale’s ‘Frankenstein’ is my favourite of the Universal monster movies. I am, therefore, somewhat surprised at myself that the poor old Monster did not appear earlier in my series of Inktober drawings, especially since I did draw his Bride. My illustration is definitely influenced by Boris Karloff’s incarnation of the Monster. I am pretty pleased with how this turned out.
