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

A great man of many titles (my high school lit teacher, high school drama teacher, fellow Beatles fan and one of my oldest friends) commissioned me to caricature him as Frankenstein. Knowing he was a Beatles, I turned this into a Beatles reference--in the 1968 animated film "Yellow Submarine", there's a scene where Frankenstein is lying on a slab, when Ringo and submarine captain Young Fred encounter him. The gag that follows goes exactly as I wrote it here (Frankenstein>Phyllis Stein>'s kind of a thinker).
