The chordae tendineae, or heart strings…

Heart Strings

The chordae tendineae, or heart strings, are cord-like tendons that connect the papillary muscles to the tricuspid valve and the mitral valve in the heart. This is another new illustration, based on a little gesture Nick did the other week. You see, he is quite susceptible to having his heart strings tugged by tv shows, and one evening he did a demonstration of how one would tug on their own heart strings. It was so adorable I had to draw it…

Miss @Makalita liked it so much she bought a canvas print of it and kindly took a photo upon its arrival! It looks great, I’m always impressed with the Red Bubble print quality.
