 "I used to draw pictures of the Frankenstein monster over and over, endlessly, in different positions," Jerry Garcia says near the start of Long Strange Trip, his voice playing over a montage of his sketches. "It touched something, I don't know what, something very strong," Garcia says. "It might have been the thing of a dead thing brought to life. Frankenstein's monster is, after all, a drive to reanimate, or to produce life, and it hit me in that archetypal center."

Jerry had a collection of recurring characters and would bring them to life by drawing them and repeating them in different ways. Frankenstein is one such character that he sketched numerous times, giving him a depth and emotion that you could really see and feel.
