The following is a list of all entries from the anatomy category.


I’m having an obsession with the human heart, at the moment. I guess this is a brief diversion from my brain obsession, while still fitting in the whole “Human anatomy is awesome” category.  The first image is the cover of my current journal (I have developed a preference for Moleskine sketchbooks). The second image is a drawing I did of the Purkinje fibers and the SA node: the electrical system of the heart. It’s pretty corny, but there’s a caption that got cut off when scanning that reads “When I’m with you, my heart lights up like a million watt bulb.”



Please note: This drawing was done from memory. Yes, I am dorky enough to be able to draw a pretty reasonably anatomically correct heart from memory. It’s one of my special skills.


In Bloom.

This collage haphazardly came together from some pieces that I had culled from a larger stack of pieces and I’m really, really happy with it. I love serendipitous art.


Fun fact: The background is a photo of a coral reef, but it looks so much like blood vessels to me that I just had to put a heart on it.

Alicia Buelow

While browsing Myartspace this morning, I came across some amazing digital collages by Alicia Buelow (website here).  I have not the words – they are simply astounding.


Alexis Anne Mackenzie

In a moment of great internet serendipity (reading the lovely blog see dorkas run – stumbled upon while obsessively combing over wardrobe_remix, as is my wont), I have stumbled across an artist whose work has given me an artgasm so powerful, I think I need a new pair of pants.

I actually thought to myself “Oh! If only I had some sort of blog to share this!” And um, self, I have words for you from the great philosopher Wayne Campbell: Live in the now. You already have a blog. Get some more rest.

Here, for your artgasming pleasure: Alexis Anne. This interview is also pretty great.

A “Body” of Work.

Two new collages. I’m really pushing myself to keep working on an anatomy theme and not get sidetracked just randomly gluing things in my boxes of paper (fun as that is!) rather than focusing in on what I’m really trying to get done. If I want to put together a body of work (no pun intended), I’ve really got to stop messing about all the time. Hopefully a few weeks of focus will help me find a happy medium between strict discipline and, well, messing around.
