Barcelona-based illustrator, Giselle Vitali, has produced an impressive collection of anatomical icons for various social media and web platforms. The icons of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Behance, and more are illustrated to resemble muscle, tissue and bones in a series entitled “Musculante”. The artist says:
“Experimentar a fondo—las redes sociales nos invaden, no sabemos si ellas son parte de nosotros o nosotros de ellas. No sabemos tampoco, quien utiliza a quien. Basados en esto, supongo que deben de tener carne, mucosas y huesos, aunque no se, si sentimientos, como nosotros mismos!”
Translation: “Experimenting thoroughly—the social networks invade us, we do not know if they are part of us or we of them. We do not know either, who uses whom. Based on this, I guess they must have meat, bones and mucus, and even feelings, like ourselves!”
Well put, Giselle Vitali. We love the transparency present in the illustrations, as if we can see more than just muscles and tissue, we can see the veins and passage of blood. Too cool.
