Bugs Bunny's Skeleton


Yes, I know the title sounds like some strange allegory, perhaps you are thinking it is the frame of some cool scooter about to be imported from Tiawan?

No. Hyungkoo Lee (I hope that's the name of the artist) has an exhibit of skeletons he's constructed for some of your favorite cartoon characters. This is so gleefully gothic, I'm beside myself. But even cooler are his sketches for the finished sculptures. Some are like pages from Leonardo's sketchbook, had he lived in an alternative universe where every Rennaisance Merchant-Prince had his own Toon-Town, ala Roger Rabbit.
