Jason Freeny Mario anatomy

[nggallery id=4]

Jason Freeny, best known for his digital dissections of our favorite childhood toys and pop culture icons, has broken out of the digital realm with his recent dissections of real toy figures.  The one above features the inner workings of everyone’s beloved brick smashing, coin collecting, mushroom squashing, ey it’s Mario!

If you’re not already a fan of Jason on Facebook…BECOME ONE!  He’s been posting photos of his step-by-step process for creating these figures along with his own commentary on the difficulties of sculpting in such small spaces.  It’s fascinating.

And if you’re in Chicago, stop by the Street Anatomy Group Gallery Show to see Jason’s work in person!
