NYCHOS creates incredible, exploding, expanding, madly deconstructed pieces of street art.


Like a recipe of classic Beauchene Skull’s in paint, anatomy textbooks and the bubbly, colorful stylings of lowbrow art…these murals must be a wonder to behold in person.





Nunzio Paci

Posted in anatomy, art with tags , on February 26, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I am always drawn to art that fuses man and nature, perhaps because my worldview is so aligned with the interconnectedness of all things.

Nunzio Paci creates images that are rather like Gray’s Anatomy left outside to sprout.


Look closely. Fibers of muscle blend into branches…creatures dwell within bodies as if they are taking sanctuary there…

Desktop Goodies 2/20

Desktop goodies are building up way faster than I can comment on all of them (I tend to save at least 20 images a day, and have never attempted to get my digital collecting in check).

Here are some images that speak for themselves.

Behold Queen Tardigrade!


She is just one of many bright, densely packed lowbrow delights from Thomas A. Gieseke.


This one is a favorite of mine, in part due to the title: The Extrovert Leaves the Introvert to His Own Devices:

We introverts do love that.

Valentine Roundup

Posted in anatomy, food, installations, valentine's day with tags , , , on February 14, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I suppose I’ve made more of a fuss over Valentine’s Day on this blog in previous years. Not sure why it kind of escaped me this time around, but since I didn’t do a countdown or themed posts, here are a few links to “Valentine” goodies (I use the holiday label loosely).

Wild at Heart Installation:


Rib Cage Cookies:

X-ray Lovers Portraits:
Adobe Photoshop PDF

I may return with more as the day goes on!

I’ll start off with two creatures by Christophe Gilland that caught my eye. Fine skill in questionable anatomical correctness:



Look at the insane amount of detail in these sketches (click for slightly larger image)! He is one of the talented folks, popping up here and there, who elevate the wild meandering of doodles to an artform.

Jessica Joslin: Animal Anatomy

Posted in anatomy, sculpture with tags , on February 4, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The inimitable Jessica Joslin has a new series of fantastically fabricated animals!


From her bio:
The creatures that populate Jessica Joslin’s world are intricate fusions of bone, brass, antique hardware and other scavenged treasures. Infused with the Victorian era’s passion for natural history and arcane technology, these creatures reflect both the real and the imagined animal, the living and the dead.


Through careful observation and intricate construction, they re-imagine the animal kingdom, bolt by bolt, beast by beast. They are a nod to the Wunderkammer of yore, and the Victorian predilection for invention and exploring science through the collecting of naturalia. The precision of the engineering conveys a sense that these beasts are anatomically plausible, and the spark of life is simulated through limpid glass eyes, engaging the viewer silently and directly.

I wish this was part of a Christmas ornament set. I would love to decorate with these:

I am always thrilled to see Jessica’s new work. Give the whole series a look HERE.

Conjuruer’s Kitchen

Conjuruer’s Kitchen makes the most majestic macabre morsels I’ve seen.

Yes, this is a cake. They all are.



I find it very interesting…the crossing of gag-worthy subject matter with delicious confections. To eat or not to eat…


The Osteologist’s dream cake:

I was gifted a Conjurer’s Kitchen hand-sculpted white chocolate raven skull by the lovely and talented Tonya Hurley…it’s too beautiful to eat. I keep it on display.

Alfonso Elola has been making the blog rounds for his wild Corporeal Scenes, but I’m also fond of his Organic Portrait series.


Every portrait in this series is a lustrous shadowy, strange mingling of skin, bone, muscle, wing and face.
