More of my artwork from the early nineties,  but in this case never used for a particular project.  Both are acrylic paint and gloss medium on illustration board (5" square).  The imagery,  in keeping with "industrial"  cliches of the time,  is somewhat disturbing in its morbid and wounded fleshiness.   Medical illustration is the inspiration here,  especially the work of Frank H. Netter,  MD (1906-1991),  who gave up medicine after finding his anatomical illustration work far more lucrative. The above are far more painterly than Dr. Netter's more clinical representations,  bordering on abstraction.
