Procartoonists member Adrian Teal has started contributing cartoons and character design to a gruesome new medical history series on YouTube called Under The Knife.
Written and presented by Dr Lindsey Fitzharris and directed by Alex Anstey, the series is dedicated to the horrors of pre-anaesthetic surgery and early medicine. It combines traditional story-telling techniques with computer animation based on Teal artwork.
Adrian tells us: “The first video has had nearly 9,000 hits. Also, we’re raising funds to cover production costs via the crowdfunding site Patreon.”
You can support the series via Patreon here. And you can watch the videos on YouTube here. But be warned: with titles such as The Clockwork Saw, The Plague Doctor, above, and, er, Victorian Anti-Masturbation Devices, it is not for the faint of heart!
