Frankie coming to life.
Making a monster is no small feat, especially when the monster has big FEET!
I must admit, adding an iconic character like Frankenstein to the Village wasn’t my first priority, but my friend Marc, who is a godfather to the mice, kept insisting he would make a great addition.
Through a series of phone calls and video chats, I sculpted little Frankie to Marc’s concept, down the individual hairs on his head.
It wasn’t always easy, for instance, the bolts on his neck were made of trimmed-down toothpicks. The problem is at that small of size they split and tear very easily, so I spent nearly a day just trying to get two perfect bolts. (No toothpick was spared!) More than few times I got perfect bolts, but they ended up flying across the room, never to be found.
In the end, I am really happy with our little creation, I think he turned out micely!
But no matter, HE'S ALIVE!
