Teeth, teratomas and eyes – oh my!

Organs painted on a longboard skate deck

Behold! Dr Fieldey’s newest mad masterpiece: Organ Truckin‘. It’s the grossest thing I have painted on a skate deck yet, and I’m in love with it… so pretty! Organ Truckin’ is painted onto a Canada moose hardwood fintail longboard deck. 

If you don’t know what a teratoma is, it’s Greek for  “monstrous tumour” which says it all really. They are fascinatingly hideous (mostly benign) tumours that contain a freakish assortment cells like skin, hair, bone, teeth, brain tissue, eyes and even possibly your parasitic twin – GASP! Also, they are quite often happily mutating away in unsuspecting victims, so you could have a sweet little of bundle of teeth, hair, pus and tiny legs living in you *right now*… Sleep tight!
