To commemorate my favorite month (October) and my favorite holiday (Halloween), I'm doing a monster sketch per day.

I'd wanted to draw Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for awhile, but wasn't sure I could do anything new with them. Then it struck me to do a female Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde, and I suddenly felt like I could bring something fresh to the table. Granted, there have been gender-swapped takes on Jekyll and Hyde in the past, but they almost always had Hyde as a sexy knock-out in modern day. I chose to keep everything in Victorian times, and decided Jekyll would be a prim and dowdy physician, while Hyde would look more like a maniacal prostitute, with sharp features (and a sharp razor) and an insane grin.
