2ND ANNUAL FRANKENSTEIN FRIDAY!

Yesterday was the 2nd annual celebration of everyone's favorite misunderstood cinematic monster.

My very good friend and brilliantly talented comic book artist, Russ Braun (-google him now if you want to spend hours looking at beautiful artwork) started this last year after he'd spent a year or so having his Friday warm up sketch be of some version of Frankenstein.

Russ invited all his friends and fellow artists to a Facebook page he created to post their own interpretations of Frankenstein just as a way of getting us all together for a virtual celebration the Friday before Halloween.

So, here are my submissions for this year's celebration.

SECRET LIFE OF PETS: GIDGET AND TIBERIUS, THE BREAKOUT STARS

It was easy to see early on that the hyperactive Pomeranian and grizzled old caged hawk would be character highlights of the film.

Jenny Slate and Albert Brooks did amazing voice work, their designs were so brilliant, then to pair them off as a team, it just all worked!

I luckily got to board a sequence, that while it didn't manage to make it into the final film, was a nice little coda to their new friendship.

Having met when Gidget stumbles upon Tiberius's coop and having him treat her as a snack as opposed to a friend, it was great fun to revisit the disgusting, dilapidated place they met after Gidget had a chance at giving the coop a surprise makeover to her liking.

Super sweet moment and great characters to play with...
