After the frustration of being shot down from Med Schools, yet always trying to keep positive by moving forward artistically, I decided I'd try something new. Inspired by the success of my girlfriend's Halloween costume (omitted from the pictures here), I wanted to break from my 2D watercolor comfort zone, and create a series of works that combine 3 elements that are dear to me— anatomy, education, and art. It seems there is a skewed connotation with with the perception of anatomy in art. For whatever reason, people tend to view it as 'morbid' or 'creepy'. Part of the goal of these pieces is to combat this ignorance, and educate individuals as to the beauty that lies beneath. Having spent time working with cadavers and creating illustrations for medical publications, I got to experience first hand just how complex yet delicate the body is, wonderfully illustrating beauty is more than skin deep.
