There's a recipe. It's a recipe for maximally useful-for-engendering-virtual-community-LJ/DW-style. I'm not sure I have it exactly down yet -- this is the alpha version -- but I'm pretty sure that, contrary to a lot of LJ/DW users think, it goes something like this:

Man, those heads are kinda creepy but really cool at the same time. And the artists live in Chicago (always a plus for me, the Chicagoan).

Those skies!

Sometimes, art presents views of things in surprisingly different ways, and every once in a while it shows things the same way you see them too. These folks have managed to fit in both for me. I look at the dawn/dusk sky when I'm under it (though in Chicago I feel the presence of the city more). The other series they've done? Nothing like what I picture in my head at all.

So cool. Thanks for the pointer.

It was the baby doll arm that creeped me out.

Wow, those heads are fun! The one you picked stands out to me too.

I love that your description identifies things I wouldn't have been able to name, like the plumb-bob. And I learned that those are sequins, although I like the name spangles too.

ObAnatomyGeeking: seahorse = hyoid bone, comb = cervical spine, circuit board = larynx (?).

I read the posting recipe, too. Interesting. My posting is not so externally motivated! Then again, I don't have a thriving community in my comments (and I always appreciate yours!).

Formal anatomy instruction as part of massage therapy school, and ongoing study because of interest.

Yeah, it's not like we give full length academic monologues to our friends in person all the time either. I'm glad the recipe gives you more ease for posting.
