Tim Ripper

Tim Ripper’s love for art and science led him to use an anatomical theme for a university advanced drawing seminar.
I enjoy the contrast between seriousness and whimsy in Renaissance anatomical illustrations (which often feature cadavers dissecting themselves or posing with architectural elements), while I also admire the level of detail in modern anatomical visualizations. As an homage to both, I tried to make my anatomical illustrations unconventional, intriguing, and occasionally tongue-in-cheek while still conveying realistic details about the parts they portrayed.
Tim’s pieces definitely have the flat stiffness of student work, but I enjoy the slightly surreal display of anatomy.
