Hello Kitty Skeleton

After my last post, I wondered if anything might shed a little stream of light into Hello Kitty Hell, and frankly, I wasn’t optimistic. That was until I saw what Hello Kitty looks like underneath all that “cuteness” and I realized that, yep, that was about what I expected. My wife was less thrilled with the rendering that Michael Paulus created:

These Icons are usually grotesquely distorted from the human form from which they derive. Being that they are so commonplace and accepted as existing I thought I would dissect them like science does to all living objects – trying to come to an understanding as to their origins and true physiological make up. Possibly to better understand them and see them in a new light for what they are in the most basic of terms.

I must admit that I prefer the skeletal image of Hello Kitty much better than the one that my wife loves so much. I think I’ll keep this image in my head each time I see Hello Kitty from now on :)

    That’s actually really cool. It somehow brings Hello Kitty to a whole new level. HK is now a bonafide work of art!!

    Michael Paulus is a really cool artist! If you’ve seen his works on Powerpuff girls, Tweety, and other cute characters, you will think the idea is even cooler than you expect. :P

    Michael Paulus rocks! :D
    Make you wonder how she can hold up her giant head with a spine like that. Her head is 1/2 the size of her entire body! hm… she’s got no mouth. I doubt she need that much chest cavity.
    I’d love to see more anatomical drawings.

    Brilliant! I was just at the Mutter Museum, so this is a nice reminder of the stuff I saw there. Heh, makes me wonder if the guy who did it would do other cartoon characters.

    As the facebookers say, Like.

    Actually, it had never occurred to me that Kitty might have a skeleton. I always assumed she was filled with pudding of some kind.
