Frankenstein Kit Box

Illustration done for co-worker. Made an effort to create a vintage kit box art illo. Got the background color from an old magazine print ad so it had the right halftone feeling, then grabbed some vintage magazine off white for the rest of the background. The main "Frankenstein" font was painted from scratch in Photoshop using Ed Roth kit lettering reference. The rest of the artwork was created in Photoshop trying to replicate the old style analog brushwork. I then overlayed halftone dots on the finished illustration to push the cheap old color printing style. Box scuffs scanned from a 40 year old Kraftwerk record cover in my collection.
