Negative Space

Negative Space

Originally posted on Skepchick. When I first got involved in organized skepticism and movement atheism I was very excited and rather intimidated. I was at a loss for words. I was pure squee. I was so thrilled to be invited to participate in this blog with so many women I looked up to and just as thrilled to be invited to speak on stage at events. But I had terrible anxiety about not being smart en... »

Atheist Duct Tape Artist: Andy Carmichael

Atheist Duct Tape Artist: Andy Carmichael

Over here at the lab we love us some good ol’ fashioned godless art. We also love us some people with wit and a goddamn-good sense of humor. All of these lovable things have combined in a sticky, colorful mass with duct tape artist, Andy Carmichael.

It is seriously my favorite thing right now and I highly encourage each and ... »

Hangout With Us on Learning Space

Hangout With Us on Learning Space

Tonight, the fine folks of Cosmo Quest are letting some of us Mad Art Labbers crash their weekly party and join them during their “Learning Space” Google hangout. Astronomy has been a big influence in my ongoing Surly art projects and so I am thrilled to be able to spend some time chatting about the relationship of art and science and… space- the final frontier. Ok, I promise not... »

Justice

Justice

Finished an odd little painting today. Inspired by in part by Jean-Michel Basquiat, I used some oil sticks on it. So it won’t be dry for a bout 2 weeks. But I like it. I think I will do some more work with those sticks.
