Design on Tap: Jason Freeny

What’s inside your favorite animated characters? Jason Freeny knows.

 

Freeny makes anatomic cutaways of iconic characters. From Mickey Mouse to LEGO men to Barbie, nothing is safe from his knife.

 

Freeny uses regular toys in his work, cutting them up and filling their insides with modeling clay, or polyurethane foam for bigger toys. Then he does “reverse forensics”, deciding what the skeleton and the guts of the character would look based on its form.

 

Freeny is an American artist specializing in sculpture, designer toys and computer-generated imagery. He studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY, and has worked on prop design and awards for MTV, as well as drawing for Penthouse and Heavy Metal magazines.
