Brazilian artist Butcher Billy describes himself as a "pop culture butcher obsessively looking for the perfect cut." I think he's found just that with his latest artworks.

Billy's work has been featured several times here on Boing Boing. If his work is your kind of thing, his Instagram is definitely worth following.

Butcher Billy of Curitiba, Brazil posted these "Clockwork Orange Babies" concept illustrations to Behance. It's wildly implausible that such a thing would ever exist, but I'd like to vacation in the parallel universe where they do.
