Although a frightening creation myth, this cartoon Frankenstein pin is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face. The Frankenstein monster is a creature in a novel written by Mary Shelley in 1818. A scientist learns how to create life and creates this being in the likeness of man. The creature starts out as an innocent and loving being. As the people begin to inflict violence on him, he develops hatred towards humans.
For years this creature has been pictured and changed, but the scars on his face and he bolt in his neck distinguish him as Frankenstein. To keep these distinguishing marks these pins are more of a humorous view of this creature. Use Glassline paints to add any details to the design.
