Last year we showed you the work of artist Hyungkoo Lee, who ripped the flesh off Bugs Bunny (figuratively speaking, of course... we're not that evil) to depict what his skeletal structure might look like. Today we spotlight the work of another talented artist who possesses a similar macabre sensibility, but with a candy-colored pop culture spin.

Artist Jason Freeny is celebrated worldwide for his digital works revealing the anatomical workings of popular toys and cartoon characters, but more recently he's been expanding his output into three dimensions with a series of detailed handmade sculptures, many of which are modified from the original toys, dolls or action figures.
The pieces manage to preserve the kid-friendly nature of Mickey Mouse, Barbie, the Smurfs, Hello Kitty, and even Gummi Bears, while simultaneously splitting their bodies open to reveal their “inner selves,” complete with bone structure and internal organs.
Check out Freeny's website Moist Production to browse multiple galleries of his creations, and you can see many of the works in progress at his Facebook page... and to answer your next question: yes, he does sell some of them. You can find currently available pieces in his shop, along with pricing and contact info.
