The imaginary organs of athletes by Katie Scott

The illustrations above are from the talented hands of Katie Scott. You can find a few recurring themes in her work: plants, crystals, plants inside crystals, and a novel approach to human/marine biology. The illustrations above were commissioned by the New York Times, and I love imagining how the insides of these athletes would work. Maybe if my inner giblets looked like this, I would be a better athlete and not worry every time I pass a ball game that the ball will go out-of-bounds and everyone will watch me try to throw or kick it back.
