A Figure Most Hideous and Abhorred

"A Figure Most Hideous and Abhorred" 9 x 12" Watercolor ©2017 Nick Gucker
A watercolor piece done for The Frankenstein Project, a publishing group called SuperMonsterCity putting out a nice high-end hardcover reprint of Mary Shelly's classic existential novel with a variety of juried art done for the book.
My piece was inspired by the moment when Victor Frankenstein discovers the body of his dead wife, and an image of his reanimated monster is appears in the window leering at Victor in his torment and sadness.

Android Dreams of Sadness

This 9x12" watercolor and ink piece was done as a one sentence story prompt during BizarroCon 2017 in Troutdale, OR. Done as live art with about a dozen other awesome artists, everyone got a different story prompt and were given about 2 hours to complete. My prompt was "An Android Dreams of Sadness". It's head inspired by those of Easter Island.

This 9x12 watercolor piece was inspired by Norm Partridges novel Dark Harvest.
