Illustrated Astronomy – Our Universe

Illustrated Astronomy – Our Universe

Aliens! Gods and Godesses! Enormous Space Stations! Rocket Ships and Shuttles! Old, Dead People From History! Am I talking about the new Michael Bay Summer blockbuster? NO! I’m talking about The National Geographic Picture Atlas of Our Universe! I like to think about how artists are influenced when they are young. What sort of experiences shape us as artists, as people? For me, I point to th... »

Illustrated Anatomy: Third Edition

Illustrated Anatomy: Third Edition

We’re sticking close to home with today’s edition of Illustrated Anatomy and telling the story of a new tattoo on my arm, designed by my fellow contributor Brian G! As I was falling asleep one foggy San Francisco night last July, I was thinking about a particularly inspirational quote from Carl Sagan (the guy was full of them): Some part of our being knows this is where we came from.

Drabble Lab Round Six: Valor, and a new schedule

Hey guys! Read on for the awesome drabbles from round five, the winner, and the illustration.

So from now on, Drabble lab is going to be a once-every-two-weeks feature. You’ll have a week to submit drabbles, I’ll post a comment when... »

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... »

Drabble Lab round 3: Growth.

Drabble Lab round 3: Growth.

This round of Drabble Lab made me grin, because there were so many repeating themes. You know you write for a wonderfully skeptical audience when the prompt of ‘truth’ yields stories mostly about the fallibility of human reason and the possible reality of totally implausible situations. In short, in most of these stories, there was no truth. And that was awesome. Once again, I recommend everyone c... »
