You know what’s awesome about fourth year? The lecturers go through so much effort to teach us. They put together nice slideshows, they share interesting tid-bits and they are friendly. They could have saved us all a lot of grief if all lecturers were this nice from first year. But I digress.
Anatomical art, which once took the world by storm (think: Frank Netter) is back and cooler than ever. Our lecturers have been alluding to some artists in their presentations. Here are some examples. I include links to the artists’ sites where I was able to find them. Please visit them, I will only include one example of each here.
Michael Paulus has an entire series of popular cartoon anatomy:
Jason Freeny has some really cool digitally animated anatomic drawings and cutaway sculptures. They include Mr Potato Head, Gummie Bears and Kewpie Dolls.
Perhaps the most realistic-looking (and slightly freaky) is done by South Korean Hyung Koo Lee. I couldn’t find his site, but this one is relatively good. He has sculptures of Goofy, Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry…
I find that these are a very different (albeit fascinating) look at characters from my childhood. I have to wonder how non-medical individuals feel about these. Let me know what you think!
very interesting. good day Nonoy Manga
Thank you for visiting and I’m glad you enjoyed it!
I LOVE this! Especially Tweety! Awesome x
Yay! I’m glad I’m not alone here.
They’re brilliant – if slightly eerie. I love Jason Freeny’s balloon dog anatomy chart, but Michael Paulus’ Powerpuff girls are slightly scary – I think it’s the huge eye-sockets!
(I’ve been enjoying reading your blog, by the way, and just plucked up the courage to comment (: )
Oh, thanks for letting me know and nice to finally meet you 🙂
The Powerpuff girls are a little freaky in those drawings, no kidding. And the balloon dog is another level of trippy 😛
Hope to see you around here again!
P.S: I’m trying very hard to comment on your blog, but it won’t let me. Blogspot hates me, I think. Dunno if it’s something to do with your comment settings perhaps?
(: Aw thanks, and I will be back (but in a friendly way, not an ominous one).
I think it probably was my comment settings – think I’ve fixed it now though 🙂
Wow! Yeah, maybe it is all a little macabre, but I love it. I wish that I could justify the expense to buy one of Paulus’ prints. Maybe one of the Powerpuff girl ones? I think they were the most unnerving. Love!
Yep, I wish I could buy one too! I like the Powerpuffs, but I prefer the non-humanoid ones – hard to believe 😛
Thanks for visiting 🙂
Have to say I haven’ t seen those before!
Stopping by from SITS Share Saturday
They’re quite something eh. Thanks for the visit!
Came over from SITS, and I have to say this is a really interesting post! I think the Hello Kitty is my favorite, only because it is the most realistic. Congrats on getting to your 4th year! 🙂
Thanks for the visit! I love the Hello Kitty too, in fact I’d love to be able to buy one.
OH EM JEE! THIS IS SO CUTE! ACADEMICALLY CUTE!
My thoughts exactly! It makes me want to study just looking at it. Well, maybe. Thanks for the visit 🙂
FAN-TAS-TIC! Can’t wait to explore these artists’ work and to share with my nerdfriends. Thanks for the info and links.
