A couple months ago, I saw a link to photos of an exhibit entitled Animatus for a Korean artist named Hyungkoo Lee at the ARARIO GALLERY and I meant to post about it then, I just never got around to it. Today I was cleaning up some bookmarks and saw it again so I thought I'd actually put something up.
What's interesting is that the exhibit consists entirely of skeletons for famous cartoon characters. The artist uses resin, aluminum sticks, stainless steel wires, springs and oil paint to simulate the bones of the various characters.
It's really cool how he captures the exaggerated features and shapes of some of the most notable characters. The Latin names shown below the images (on the page) are useful for figuring out which character it is supposed to be (if it isn't obvious). The fact that most of the page is in Korean will mean you're kind of on your own for other details. I've included a couple of the skeletons next to their animated character below.
If you have the time though, I'd recommend you check the site out yourself. The images load kind of slowly but are definitely cool.
