Jason Freeny is the self-proclaimed "son of hippies," a wildly weird artist and designer whose series of anatomical toy sculpture are terrifying and awesome. Freeny acquired a degree in industrial design at Pratt, then went on to work for MTV as a designer and artist. He has a youthful imagination that both astounds and disturbs. These imagined anatomy studies challenge the boundaries of childlike and adult, giving three dimensions to an otherwise very illustrative idea. Freeny's work is both innocent and strange, scientific and fanciful, mature and youthful.

Nothing says Thursday morning blues like seeing the hypothetical guts of your favorite children's toys.
