This Artist Creates Anatomically Correct Skulls of Famous Cartoon Characters (6 Pics)

The cartoons of our childhoods gave us very weird impressions about the power of spinach, the laws of physic, and the ability to bounce back from dynamite explosions. The characters also featured pretty weird anatomy, which made them easier to draw and more fun to look at, but probably didn’t do much for our biology homework. An artist name Filip Hodas made a series of illustrations playing with that dynamic that will make you wonder exactly what was going on underneath Mickey’s skin. Creepy, huh?

Hodos is based in the Czech Republic and he works in 3D illustration. His work is so realistic that when you first glance at his drawings they seem like sculptures, which is perfect for his “Cartoon Fossils” project. Hodos writes about the series:

I always enjoyed creating skulls. I decided to combine my skull passion with 3D and some of my favorite childhood cartoon characters. Initially, I wanted to make them stylized as dinosaurs set up in a museum environment, but later decided against it, as the skulls didn’t look very recognizable on their own— especially with parts broken or missing.

Hmm, I would have like to see that. But these are pretty awesome, too:
