German artist Johannes Baptista Ludwig has taken classic animated characters and quite literally turn them inside out, titling the results ‘Bugs Boney,’ and ‘Mickey Mort,’ respectively. The pieces, which combine the real bones of cats and rabbits with items ranging from bamboo to soy sauce, are both maniacal and hauntingly playful. Both ‘Bugs Boney’ and ‘Mickey Mort’ demonstrate Ludwig’s ability to create something beautiful out materials that on their own are nothing of the sort.

    This concept is not new. The southkorean artist Hyungkoo Lee did more or less the same with his ‘Animatus’ series back in 2005-2006.

    Yeah, the concept, I saw on Ludwigs website his concept is from 2003. Am I wrong? Well, nevertheless I find it a great work and it´s not like the stuff Lee did. Superb!
