An Appreciation by Aprés La Pub

Je vous remercie, Après La Pub

Google Translate says, "I brought you candy because the flowers is perishable and then candy, it's so good especially when they are chewed by Megan Foldenauer who also painted many other things as candy, like a nut or hush -puppy or Ken head or an old TV or a duck, a bike, a Tiffany lamp since 2014, she decided to make a miniature work a day for all to see, her website here is a pretty good solution..."

The Jealous Curator

Bachelor of Fine Arts – The School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Bachelor of Science – Eastern Michigan University; Master of Arts – The Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, Dept. of Art as Applied to Medicine; Doctor of Philosophy – Wayne State University, School of Medicine, Dept. of Anatomy & Cell Biology. Yep. All of that is hanging on the wall of Michigan based artist Megan Foldenauer. She draws all sorts of things {portraits, bio-medical illustrations, songs that she makes into quizzes}, but it was her very simple and very sweet series, titled “Morsels” that got me. Nostalgic, delicious, and beautifully drawn. Thank you Dr.Foldenauer… now I want coke bottle gummies, with a side of chocolate peanut butter cups, and one little candy-cane to help kick off the holiday season! Yum.

The Illustration Age: The Brilliant Work of Megan Foldenauer

The Brilliant Work of Megan Foldenauer. That is a literal statement. Unlike me and most of the rest of us doodling fools, Megan has a Doctorate in Philosophy. Yes, you read that right in addition to a couple of Baccalaureate’s in art and science and a Masters of Arts degree, Megan is a PhD. So stop your doodling and your chicken scratching and head over to see some amazing work. I have always been enamored with medical illustration, it is an old art form which has actually contributed something to the world. While it needs to be precise, there is room for interpretation and design in order to make anatomy and medical techniques useful as a teaching and informational tools. Megan has loads of great medical and scientific work here. I also like her portraiture. See it here and a very cool time-lapse video of her carbon dust technique here.
