Momento Mori II – Emily Evans

May 10, 2015

Emily Evans has, quite possibly, the best job in the world. What allows her to have this job (and prevents people like me from having it…) is obviously a fairly hefty dose of genuine talent.

As a professional medical illustrator she spends her days blurring the boundaries between art and science.

In addition to a very impressive collection of technical drawings, she has a number of ‘less rigid’ but still scientifically and anatomically accurate (squee!) pieces worthy of admiration.

Momento Mori II – Emily Evans

This magnificent lady is not just a pretty face. The Momento Mori II image is also a beautiful skull.

In addition to a perky quiff and rosebud lips, this chick is sporting infraorbital (on her cheeks) and mental (on her chin) foramen, darling nasal bones and sutures around the zygomatic bones.

And, if that pic is not enough for you, it is well worth a visit to the website where you can pick up all sorts of cool stuff including skull cushions and skull wall paper. Yes, you read that right, skull wall paper.

If anyone is trying to work out what I want for xmas, I want this. I want it a lot.

Ecce Animal – Diddo

August 16, 2014

I am going to assume that you were not all totally asleep like I was and missed this one… or maybe it wasn’t reported in the Southern Hemisphere… but this skull is made out of cocaine!

While the sound of it does give me mental images of Dr Rockso (if you haven’t watched Metalocalypse please do, you are missing out) the skull itself is really much less vulgar than the rock’n’roll clown is making me picture.

Dr Rockso – he does cocaine.

In fact, it is really quite beautiful. The piece is really well proportioned considering it is made of an illegal substance. It has very well defined ramus of the mandible and angular zygomatic bones.

He sure is pretty (we’re calling it a him because of his wide, square jaw)!

The artist Diddo has it listed on his website as a commissioned piece so your chances of seeing it in person are pretty slim. We can only hope it has taken pride of place in someone’s collection and hasn’t accidentally been snorted.
