The Realistic Anatomy Of Popular Toys

Most kids don't take the best care of their toys. Sure, they'll get excited about a new Barbie doll, teddy bear, or lego set for five minutes, but next thing you know, the toys have been beheaded and can be found strewn limbless around the house. Perhaps kids would take better care of their toys if, rather than the usual stuffing or pieces of plastic they are used to seeing upon dismemberment, they were greeted with a skeleton and organs instead? New York-based sculptor and toy designer Jason Freeny reimagines popular children's characters and designs them with a 'realistic anatomy,' displaying them dissected down the middle. They aren't exactly available for mass production, but maybe this is the way forward? Here are some of his masterful creations, but you can catch more of them on his Facebook and Instagram pages.

Artist Travels To Beautiful Locations To Paint The Pattern of His Own Shirt

Art is a difficult topic to dicsuss because it's all a matter of taste; what one person finds beautiful, another person finds vulgur. It's all relative. But you know what isn't as relative? Humor. OK, it is, but what you're about to see is objectivally funny. Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert have started a project where they travel to beautifully scenic locations, set up an easel and begin to paint. But Hank doesn't paint what he sees. No, he paints the design of the shirt he is wearing, while Fabiamn photographs him doing it. This hysterical take on classic outdoor painting gave us a laugh, so we thought we'd share it with you. Enjoy!

The Mona Lia is perhaps one of the most famous faces in the world. Painted by Leonardo da Vinci in the early 16th century, her mysterious smile has captivated the world ever since and became one of the most well-known art history pieces. But what if she was a modern gal, living in today's world? Would she be an Instagram influencer, would she be a mom, would she be cool, or would she be a loner? One artist on Instagram has reimagined what the Mona Lisa would look like today by cleverly photoshopping her into a bunch of Instagramable poses, and it looks like she would be iconic whenever she exists.

Artist Creates Creepy AF Jewelry Out Of Barbie Doll Parts

Most little girls grew up with a Barbie or two (or fifteen in my case), and for many, it was their gateway into the world of makebelieve. Artists worldwide are using Barbie to inspire their creativity, but one has taken it to a potentially dark place. Jewelry designer Margaux Lange has created a Plastic Body Series art jewelry collection, in which she uses salvaged Barbie doll body parts combined with sterling silver and pigmented resins. According to her website, "The series is a result of Lange's desire to re-purpose mass-produced materials into handmade, wearable art. It is meant to examine and celebrate her own (as well as pop culture's) relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie." I can't work out if it's beautiful or slightly serial-killer-esque. What do you think?
