Self-Portrait in Flannel Shirt - Weird drawing made with white-out and a fluorescent-pink paint pen.
Anatomically fun work by comic book illustrator Dan Zettwoch. The top painting was done for a show called Congestive Art Failure (great title) at the Evermore Gallery in St. Louis, which also happens to be a tattoo and piercing shop. The show focused on medical illustration so Dan decided to focus on the gross anatomy of the things found under his recliner, such as:
Fritos (whole & partially smashed by the mechanical guts of the chair)
The dissection of iconic childhood cartoons continues to thrive! Italian digital artist Alessandro Conti’s Inhuman Anatomy series details the anatomy of beloved Disney characters, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Pluto. It sounds like Alessandro’s gotten some great feedback on his Inhuman series and will continue to do more. Keep an eye out!
Also, is anyone else slightly freaked out by Mickey and Minnie? Hide your kids.

Another captivating piece by Italian artist Valentina Formisano! This stop motion animation was created entirely by hand as a didactical book for children to learn about the inner working of the human body. It is inspired by the books of Italian artist and designer, Bruno Munari. I love how each piece of the animation can stand on its own as a beautiful graphic representation of anatomy.
Valentina Formisano is an young artist hailing from Macerata, Italy. I love how she combines detailed textured drawing with the embossing and cutting out of paper. Looking forward to seeing more of her work!
