This is actually my very most favorite drawing from the whole movie, it was a statue for the theatre that used to be Greco-Roman themed (but was very sensibly changed to art deco) that would have been tucked away in a corner somewhere and hidden in the shadows, but I referenced (stole) it directly from the most beautiful statue of a Mermaid clutching a lobster to her breast that I found in a book somewhere.

You probably don't need anyone to tell you this, but your work is really genius. Many a fine movie and show could be launched on the back of your work alone. The unbridled inventiveness, humor and expression in each piece is truly inspiring!

Always looking forward to more!

Eeps.. I'd very much like to unleash a torrent of questions in this wee comment box in regards to how you achieve such general awesomeness with your illustrations,
I'll limit it to this:
What sort of pen is that?
Also, hello again from a random internet person :D
Also also, feel free to not comment back. Um. I don't know. You might not check this thing very often. Oh well.

HAha, I love that sneaky glans from the side! Beautiful work! I want to own everything you draw and hang it on my walls for inspiration!

For JML: I don't think it looks like a pen at all.
The lines are too dynamical and fluent for a pen to achieve.

My guess wouldn't be a brush either, the lines would be softer and "hairier" if it was a brush...

So, considering the edgyness and scruffyness of the lines in this drawing I would presume it to be a nice steel pen which you dip in fluent ink.

But hey, what do I know...I'm just guessing here...hehe ^_^

Hi Dan, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

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, location, 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 think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

I would really appreciated if you could link me.
