Making a book

Making a book

I’ve always wanted to make a picture book, but I’ve never quite come up with a story that I liked enough to commit to. Last December a drawing out of my sketchbook that I posted on twitter sparked a back and forth between myself and Treelobsters, and he ended up writing a short story about my little drawing. This was SO. COOL. After a bit more back and forth we established that A) we both wanted t... »

This Is What Happens When I Avoid Doing Work

This Is What Happens When I Avoid Doing Work

The (Un)Censorship Project

Introducing the (Un)censorship Project!   This post, including the digital imagery, was created by Skepchick, Melanie. It was originally posted over on Skepchick but we feel that it truly qualifies as art and should get its 15 minutes over here in the Lab too. In fact, it might even fit into Lauren’s collage project!

The Brain Gallery Project

The Brain Gallery Project

The fabulous Jennifer Ouellette just tweeted about an interested project that combines art, science, sense of self and you guessed it, brains. The Brain Gallery Project is part of the Brain Observatory at UC San Diego and is interested in “how people picture their mind.” The Brain Gallery Project has done this by creating an interactive project that incorporates a drawing tool that all... »
