Punchgut Studio: Electric Frankenstein
Piss-takes of the famed Che Guevara photo (taken by Alberto Diaz Gutierrez) have appeared in various guises all over the pop culture landscape. Here's Punchgut Studio's intepretation, a nice bold print complete with neck bolts and stitches. Click here to see the original scan, and if you're lucky, you might still be able to get a copy from the Punchgut website.
Like the Dr Alderete print shown below, this was framed with no matting, so only time will tell if it will hold up.
Looking at photos of both frames makes me realize that accurate size is difficult to judge. Although they look roughly the same size from the photos, blue lucha man is easily more than twice as large as Franken-che.
