Well folks, every time you bite into a Gummy Bear, that there is what you're crushing and grinding up with your teeth. I hope you're happy.
And maybe you'll think twice about letting your child toss their toys about the room so casually, once you consider the fragility of those toys' innards.
These hand-sculpted objects are the work of artist Jason Freeny, who graduated from Pratt in Industrial Design. On his Facebook page he's even got some process shots:
"Believe it or not, a synthetic paintbrush proves to be one of the best sculpting tools." "Laying in clay to sculpt hand bones."
Those of you with long memories may recall seeing something similar: In 2005 the artist Hyungkoo Lee exhibited his crazy Lepus Animatus series, where he sculpted amazingly detailed, paleontological-grade skeletons of famous cartoon characters:
Artist Michael Paulus, meanwhile, sells his own anatomy-book-style drawings of cartoon characters' skeletons on his Etsy page.
We assume that Hyungkoo Lee was the first to do this, inasmuch as that matters, based on his 2005 project date; but we admittedly cannot locate creation dates for Freeny and Paulus' work. In any case, all of the artists' projects are cool enough and distinct enough, we think, to stand on their own (though we're sure you guys will come up with faves).
