#MonsterMySelfie Portraits: "Franken-Baby"

Franken-Baby by Philip A. Buck 5x7 inches, ink on bristol board paper.

   You’ve met the Monster & His Bride, now meet their “Franken-Baby!” The #MonsterMySelfie Portraits Sale may be over, but I couldn’t let any more time pass without sharing this little guy with you all. His amazing parents, Patrick & Sarah ordered their monster portraits a few years back & wanted the newest addition to their monstrous family to have a portrait as well! Scroll through to see his parents & a bit of my process on this piece. God bless!
