“Close Attention” by Bernie Wrightson!

The FINAL print in this series of Frankenstein images from the great Bernie Wrightson is quite possibly my personal favorite. The composition and lighting are just perfect, and the line-work in the shading is sublime. The isolation and longing in The Monster’s look is haunting.  Just beautiful.

“Close Attention” measures 20×30, is printed on 130lb Cougar Natural paper, and is signed and numbered by the artist in an edition of only 140 worldwide.  Only 30 copies available for general sale, the remainder are tied up in Subscriptions- of which a tiny bit are still left HERE.

Originally created for an illustrated edition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, published by Marvel Comics in the early 80’s, it has been our supreme honor to work with Bernie in bringing these images to the silk-screen medium in such a large format.

“Close Attention” will be available for sale on TUESDAY 9/10/13 at 2pm Central time HERE in the Art prints section of the Nakatomi Store.
