Jason Freeny's Sculptures Dissect Icons & Toys From Hello Kitty to Mickey Mouse.

In June of 2008, I introduced you to the twisted talents of illustrator Jason Freeny who exposed the insides of such fun items as Balloon Dogs and Gummi Bears. Since then, he's begun crafting 3D sculptures by modifiying existing vinyl toys by fellow artists or creating the sculptures from scratch - partially revealing the insides of advertising icons and well-known characters.

The ultimate compliment, Jason takes a deeper look, literally, at the works of Disney and Pixar characters, Charles Schultz characters, Toy and commercial icons like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, the Pillsbury Dough Boy, Hello Kitty, video game characters, vinyl collectibles like Dunnys, Qees and more. He even exposes vintage Care Bares and Kewpie Dolls.

*sadly and somewhat ridiculously, 20th Century Fox and David Horvath of Ugly Dolls made Mr. Freeny remove his versions of their characters from his site.
