Street Anatomy’s 5 Year Anniversary!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since Street Anatomy began as a small medical illustration blog. Each year I’ve seen it grow exponentially all thanks to our wonderful audience and the amazing artists who use human anatomy in their art.

I want to thank each and every one of you for following Street Anatomy and for supporting us in bringing you the best anatomical art out there from all over the world!!

This past year brought us a very successful gallery show, OBJECTIFY THIS: Female Anatomy Dissected and Displayed, numerous features and interviews in blogs, an expanded gallery store, and increasing relationships with many anatomical artists.

But, rather than make this about reminiscing, I’m going to take you forward to where Street Anatomy is headed. We have so many exciting projects coming up in the next few months that I’ll preview for you below! You’ll hear more about these projects in the days and weeks ahead, so stay tuned!

Street Anatomy website redesign

After showcasing anatomical art for the past 5 years, I am redesigning Street Anatomy into an easily scannable and searchable responsive grid layout.  It will be a beautiful experience across your mobile device, iPad/tablet, and desktop! I’ll also be adding street art and tattoo gallery pages, an exhibition section, featured artists section, and much more!
