It all started with the idea that German’s call their big beer mugs “Steins”.
So the first goal was to resemble Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein in the glass Stein.
I started to really dig the idea and expanded it to include the various characters from the famous movie, Son Of Frankenstein. Hopefully you can recognise Dr Frankenstein, The Wolfman and the quintessential terrified screaming female poking her head through the handle of the Stein.
The main aim at the last stage was to get the beer froth really working in that beloved French Nouveau style I love so much. The French, being wine drinkers, used it mainly for vines and hair. Myself as an Australian, used it for beer.
It’s available in starker contrast on brighter tees and full colour as a poster or Mounted print.
Hope y’all dig it.

    This is fantastic mate – really love the way you’ve worked Karloff’s expression into the stein and the surrounding elements frame it really well.

    Top notch stuff!

  • What a great way to have lunch…reading this comment from you Simon. Thank you so much.

    This threw me initially, but the more I look at it (especially close up) the better it looks. Love the stein/frankenstein play and the explanation about how it evolved from there. It would have been very easy just to have some green mug of beer with bolts coming out – but this has turned out nicely. 5 stars…

  • Thanks Vinko, glad I didn’t throw you all together! Perhaps this illo is a creeper…
