Uncle Paddy

Aussie artist Nigel Milsom has won the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize 2013, worth $150,000, with his painting Uncle Paddy, which to me looks suspiciously like the Frankenstein monster as played by Boris Karloff in James Whale's 1931 classic. All Uncle lacks is a neck bolt. Milsom completed the painting while on bail awaiting sentencing for armed robbery. He is currently serving six years in prison (CLICK). I guess he didn't make it to the award ceremony.
