Matt Shanks: Small adventures in words and pictures

Gifts for baby jesus

The three wise men travelled a distance unimaginable even in today’s technology age. Guided by the brightest star in the midnight blue sky, the blisters on their feet began to weep, their mouths drier than the desert in which they’d spent the last days. They knew that the King had come and there were only a few gifts worthy of him – Gold, Frankenstein and Myrrh.

Artist notes: I grew up in a very Christian household but the "Frankenscence" thing always bugged me as a child. What was it? How did they get it and why would Jesus want it? Getting a Frankenstein however, that was way cooler.
