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.
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!
