Artist Jason Freeny is widely known for his surreal anatomical models of popular toys, such as sliced see-through barbie dolls and skeletal legos. His latest offbeat creations showcase the organs and bones of two more childhood joys: balloon dogs and rubber duckies. There must be some popular demand for hypnagogic art, because Freeny's newest releases are now available as kits that anyone can construct themselves.
Freeny’s latest kits are available for sale through the website Mighty Jaxx and through the artist’s own website, though many are quickly selling out. The Bathing Ducky Anatomy and the Balloon Dog Funny Anatomy are among the most popular of his kit creations, some including up to 26 separate bones and organs that one can assemble and then encase in a clear plastic cover.
The sculptor and designer first became enthralled with fictional anatomy art after the birth of his son and a brief stint as a staff toy designer. Freeny developed an obsession with the what the pop artist calls “a surreal mixture where innocence clashes with maturity.”
His imaginative works are available in the form of these DIY anatomy kits, original sculptures, or prints. In addition to rubber duckies and balloon dogs, his other playful creations include various dolls, gingerbread men and legos.
*Note: No dogs or ducks were harmed in the making of this art.
