My wife dragged me, literally, into the Body Worlds exhibit a few weeks ago. Frankly said I was not impressed. There was nothing there which I did not expect. I feel corpses should be left alone, ether in the ground or in ash form. Really the most interesting things I found at the entire exhibit were the tumors and illnesses, like enlarged hearts and kidneys. Those were indeed eye opening, as well as the blackened lungs of the coal mine worker…

Skinless Anatomy

Anyways, ignore my disdain for corpses, or lack of desire to view them set up as dancers and split up like onion blooms. If nothing else viewing the exhibit motivated me a bit to draw the above image. It’s all pencil with very minor contrast adjustments and touch-ups in Photoshop. Before you get your panties in a bunch I did’t use any references!
