Random Acts of Art: 3.4 Hibiscus Flowers

Random Acts of Art: 3.4 Hibiscus Flowers

Spring is already in full force here in sunny southern California and my allergies are the proof. But even if your nostrils are clear and it is still cold and cloudy where you are, know that spring is right around the bend. And until your spring has sprung, please accept this visual treat as my tiny offering to tide you over till the sun starts beaming down in all it’s bud-blooming glory. He... »

Random Acts of Art: 3.3 The Pathogen Listeria in Mammalian Cells

Today’s installment of Random Acts of Art is inspired by a custom order I just finished. I was asked to create some ceramic coasters with a representation of the pathogen Listeria monocytogenes in mammalian cells. So I did. I enjoyed doing the drawing so much, I created a few extra. Click on the second link here to see a video of Listeria in action and google Listeria to learn more! »

Random Acts of Art: 2.28 Dam it!

Random Acts of Art: 2.28 Dam it!

It’s the end of February so I thought I would slip in one last random act of art for the month.   A lot of little annoying things have been happening in my world this month. I have seen some people I used to call friends, acting out in ways that have caused me to be very disappointed in them. It’s sad to see, but I know I can’t control the actions of others. I figure, in the... »

Random Acts of Art: 2.26 Women in Secularism 2

Random Acts of Art: 2.26 Women in Secularism 2

This weekend I completed some pendants that will be given as gifts to the speakers and staff at Women in Secularism 2 conference happening in Washington, DC May 17th-19th. I recreated their logo in ceramic which was a bit tedious and time consuming. I had to paint in all the details including a tiny dot of green in the eyes. I also inked in the crackle glaze to highlight the fissures that form ran... »

Random Acts of Art: 2.18

Random Acts of Art: 2.18

In honor of the quickies posts that the Skepchick network is known for, I have decided to start my very own Random Acts of Art posts. At least once week, I will post a snapshot of a piece of art here on Mad Art Lab that I have created over the past few days. The piece of art may be a photo, it may be a sculpture, it may be a painting or even a video. I don’t want to limit any of the possibil... »

Good Design: San Diego Coalition of Reason Billboard

Good Design: San Diego Coalition of Reason Billboard

We complain a lot about bad designs in advertising, and OW MY EYES there is just SO much to complain about. But today, I am happy to give a shout-out to a team that managed to take a difficult topic and make it both beautiful and accessible. Aesthetics and immediate positive messaging is never more important than when it is used in advertising and specifically in billboards, as such little time is... »
