My 2-year-old son is obsessed with the movie Cars. Obsessed, I tell you!
While surfing the net for pictures of Lightning McQueen, I stumbled across this little oddity. An illustrator named Jake Parker wondered how the insides of one of Pixar’s cars might work, considering that these vehicles are “strange machine/flesh hybrids,” in Parker’s own words.
So to satisfy his own curiosity, he drew up this cross-section of Lightning McQueen, imagining what the “internal structures” might look like that would make a machine/flesh living car work. The result is both unflinchingly gross and strangely cool.
I won’t be showing it to my little boy, though.
