Product Description: After years of unanswered e-mails and phone messages, we've finally managed to get the infamous Dr. Frankensketch to reveal his monster drawing technique. We're happy to say it was well worth the wait. Now you, too, can piece together one-of-akind monsters and then draw them into mutant life!
Just like his slightly more famous cousin, Dr. Frankenstein, Frankensketch started by collecting parts of other creatures the legs of a skeleton, the torso of a gorilla, the head of a rabid, one-eyed, space-alien octopus, and so on. Lay those parts into the patented Monster Drawing machine, a covered tray that securely holds them in the formation of one beastly body. Now trace your monster and laugh maniacally as lightning flashes in the sky! (That last bit isn't really necessary, but it's a nice effect.) The book includes 20 complete monsters ready to be punched into interchangeable body parts. Plus a pile of tracing paper to make a host of new monster friends. And, of course, the most important tool of all, the pencil. The whole thing is scary simple and frightfully fun.
