The digital collages of Russian artist Ffo combine classic pin-up artwork with anatomical drawings and botanical illustrations to result in creepy but compelling images.
PinUp Anatomical Art Collages
The artist, who prefers to remain anonymous, has only a tumblr blog where they post pinup anatomical art collages. Tight-lipped and enigmatic, the pieces are shared online with the artist’s moniker (Ffo), location (Russia) and process. In answers to a few questions from fans, I’ve learned that he/she uses Systemax PaintTool SAI to make line vector art and Adobe Photoshop for the combining and coloring of the images.
Sources for the collages, which are unsigned, include the works of legendary anatomical and medical illustrators Frank Netter and JM Bourgery. Add to that botanical and scientific illustrations he finds on the web and flickr combined with art by several classic pin-up artists and Voilà!
