Presenting my latest illustration... Frankettes!
I created this for Domestic Etch Magazine, they asked if I would come up with something for their theme of 'growth & decay.' I have wanted to do a Frankenstein-girl illustration for a super long time, and this was the perfect opportunity!
To address the growth & decay theme, I wanted to take a well-known image or person and 'zombiefy' them. I ended up basing the illustration around a photo of the 1960's girl group The Ronettes. I was debating whether to make the image yuckier by adding decaying skin and worms, but decided not to. The Frankettes may be an electric psychobilly punk group, but they are still classy!
