smackshack: a crude digital self-portrait (Default)
BoingBoing posted a link to this great pin-up calendar using X-rays of models instead of the normal photographs. (Or maybe it's an artist's rendition of X-rays...it might be medical malpractice to use real full-body X-rays in this manner.)

Anyway, it's cool, and it reminds me happily of a character from Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd & Gray Mouser books, a ghoul woman warrior named Kreeshkra whom Fafhrd courts and loves for a while. She has transparent skin and tissue, so all one sees is the bones (unless she's digesting). But she feels right and apparently likes Fafhrd well enough to set aside her taste for man-flesh for a while.

(While Googling to remember the character's name, I see that I'm not the only person to make the connection. Hee!)
