Honestly, I thought I already posted this long ago, but during a discussion in one of my summer classes, I found out I hadn’t – so here it is, thanks to my student Aliya for finding the initial link.
In an anatomy class at RMIT University in Melbourne, a student is transformed with the help of art students over 18 hours to the “Anatomical Man.” They painted all the superficial muscles and had him pose to show muscle location and movements.
As it gets warmer here in California, here’s a thought: it’s winter down under 🙂
