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. The piece itself is inspired by my recent thoughts on the secular movement and some of the major orgs refusal to see social justice issues as relevant. There is so much poten... »

Carl Sagan, Immortalized in SpokePOV

Carl Sagan, Immortalized in SpokePOV

Cross posted from Skepchick. Post by Rebecca Watson. OK, maybe “immortalized” isn’t exactly the right word for a portrait in LEDs that only appears when in motion, but it’s close enough. SpokePOV is a kit you can build that will let you program images that appear on your bicycle’s wheel when you ride at a certain speed. The “POV” stands for “persiste... »

Skepchick Auctions: Original Surly Art, Elyse’s Penis, Skepchick Goblet, Custom Cocktail & More

ORIGINALLY POSTED ON SKEPCHICK. Post by Melanie. Contrary to MRA mythology, Skepchicks don’t think there’s anything wrong with owning a penis. In fact, this week, you have a chance to own the penis you’ve always dreamed of, custom made to your specifications in MS Paint by El Mofo herself, Elyse Anders. That’s just one of the many items we’ve got up for sale on eBay a... »

Slippery Slope

Slippery Slope

The slippery slope fallacy is when you are in a discussion with someone and they say something like, “If we allow gay people the right to legally marry then PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING COWS AND LAWN FURNITURE AND DOGS AND CATS WILL BE OWNING PROPERTY AND THE ECONOMY WILL CRASH BECAUSE NO ONE WILL BUY CARS BECAUSE DOGS AND CATS AND COWS WILL WALK EVERYWHERE AND POOP ON THINGS!” In other wor... »

Random Acts of Art: 4.1 Uncommon iPhonographs

I may have just made up the word iPhonographs, or I am using it wrong. Who cares!? I figure it is a good word to describe a series of photos I took with my iPhone’s camera while I was in Austin, Texas for the American Atheist Convention this past weekend. While I was in Austin my good friend Matt Dillahunty was kind enough to show me around town. One of the places he took me was a really coo... »

Random Acts of Art: 3.24 Astronomy is Beautiful

Rumor has it, a whole lot of funding is going to disappear this coming week as NASA feels the effects of huge budget cuts due to sequestration. Hardest hit will be programs designed for outreach and public science communication. It may be up to us, as artists and civilians, to lend a hand and help find private funding and to disseminate the information discovered by scientists in the field of astr... »

Random Acts of Art: 3.13 Rabbits

For today’s Random Acts of Art, I’d like to share with you some drawings of some cute, fuzzy bunnies that I then turned INTO STONE. Just kidding, I only turned them into ceramic.     Random rabbit facts: Rabbits are mammals. With proper care, indoors a rabbit can live approximately 8 to 10 years but an outdoor rabbit usually only lives one year. Rabbits are nose breathers. Ra... »
