Michael Hacker: Brainwashing Machine

Posted in absurd, anatomy, art, craft, home with tags , , , , on June 28, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

If only illustrator, comic and poster artist Michael Hacker would paint my washing machine! What a perfect vision this would be upon opening the laundry closet doors.

I rather wish I could just pour some detergent into my brain and give it a good cleansing when there’s too much grime built up. Wouldn’t that be great?




His two dimensional art is full of fun, lowbrow goodness, too.

Things are hectic non-blogular real life, but I want to share this terrific image by Damian Majcherek.


He looks mildly puzzled that his guts are all over the forest floor. Isn’t it the perfect blend of glowing, ethereal fantasy land and evisceration?

Ive been meaning to post about Olivia Knapp for quite sometime. I saved her entire portfolio, because I love looking at these images so much.


From the artist bio:
Olivia Knapp’s intricate hand drawn pen and ink style is influenced by European line engravings of decorative relief and scientific specimens from the 16th to 18th centuries.


Her tight cross-hatching technique involves long slow and steady curved lines that articulate the surface contours of her subjects; creating supple and tangible imagery. These un-swelled lines incorporate a “line to dot” rendering method as well as an, extremely rare “dot and lozenge” rendering method. “Dot and lozenge” is a practice that was used by 16th century masters, in which a dot is placed in the center of a diamond shape made by a cross hatching pattern, helping to refine the transition between values.


Most of Olivia’s content explores the relationship between desire, reason, and circumstance. Her current body of work uses the head and heart as contrasting characters in an on going story.

Brain Coasters

Posted in anatomy, products, science, wish list with tags , , , on April 28, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

These Brain Coasters have been making the rounds in many of the blogs I follow lately (and some kind readers sent me the link, too!).


Each set of Brain Specimen Coasters comes with ten glass coasters. Each coaster has four rubber feet (to further protect the surfaces the coasters are protecting in the first place) and a slice of brain printed on it. If you stack your Brain Specimen Coasters in the proper order (which is easy to do, since the coasters are labeled) and look from the proper angle, you’ll see a full brain.


These belong in my house.

Are you ready to have your mind blown by embroidery? Then check out Julie Sarlouette’s creations.


Yes, these are embroidery.

You’ll find a number of anatomical themes, and her subjects are always intense and expressive. Her creative use of color is extraordinary.

I love Caitlin McCormack’s crocheted creatures!


Some appear to me made from vintage doilies. Such an unlikely craft material for this subject matter, and I think it works.




The stray strings add to these pieces, as if they impart a kind of natural disarray or decomposition. Beautiful.

Alexey Kashpersky creates hyper-realistic 3D cadaver images using ZBrush, and the detail is extraordinary.


Alexey has an impressive background. Earning a Master of Visual and Decorative and Applied Arts while in the Ukraine, he went on to create a large volume of 3D work for the television and print industries. Later on he settled down to specialize in scientific visualization.


How incredible is the texture he achieves?
