Anatomy Orgy

I am a huge fan of anatomical artwork.  My favorite living artist is Alex Grey.

 So I get really excited about anatomical art.  Another thing I like to look at is any orgy-esque scene of just way too many faces and bodies for the area they are in.  My favorite non-living artist is Rodin, and my favorite piece by him is the Gates of Hell.

Anyway, it would obviously delight me to find books made of such things, so when I found Brian Dettmer’s art, I got super super excited.  It isn’t all image only.  In fact, he does some really cool stuff with words and anatomy like this:

Not to mention that although I am not so efficient with it, my exacto knife is my new best friend, so when I read about his use of surgical tools and started mixing all these ideas in my mind.  Anyway, this is the image only art that first caught my attention:

So, yeah… that’s about it.
