Coloring Book Images Get Morbid with Skeletal Artwork

The idea of coloring books is that they allow kids to flex their art skills and bring their favorite characters to life, a few strokes of the crayon turning drab outlines into colorful images.  It's a magical process when you're a kid, but the fun of coloring books inevitably wears thing.  You won't find too many full-grown adults trying to color between the lines, but that doesn't mean you can't still have fun with the childhood art form.  You've just gotta be creative.

As seen on Geekologie, French pinup illustrator and comic artist Chris Panda has found a brilliantly creepy way to give the fun of coloring books an adult twist, with an art project that exposes the skeletal systems of some of pop culture's most beloved characters.  Rather than coloring between the lines, Panda instead draws skeletons atop cartoony coloring book images, giving us a peek inside the bodies of characters like Popeye, Spiderman and Bambi - no X-Ray glasses needed!

Check out some of the results of the anatomical experiment below, and see more over on Panda's Facebook page.
