Drabble Lab Round 9: Explosive

Hello all! Sorry for the lateness of Drabble Lab this round; I am on vacation and foolishly messed up sending the winner out to Brian, who was illustrating. But oh man, there was some great stuff last round! »

FACE OFF: Skull-A-Day v. Street Anatomy Gallery Show at the IMSS

FACE OFF: Skull-A-Day v. Street Anatomy Gallery Show at the IMSS

I attended the opening to this ongoing show on May 31st (Skull Appreciation Day!). It runs at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago until August 25th. As I have mentioned in the past, this is a really cool location in its own right and has at least a painting and a statue devoted to skeptical hero Ignaz Semmelweis. Here he is telling med students to WASH THEIR DAMN HANDS after di... »

‘Tis (Art) Festival Time!

So now that the weather here has finally decided to be vaguely spring-ish (quite an accomplishment for the middle of June), it’s time for me to roust myself out of my cave and go look at awesome things. So I can be inspired to go make my own awesome things. Or at least be grateful that someone else has meticulously crafted these finely intricate awesome things so I don’t have to. WHOA ... »

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

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... »

I’ve got Moxie

…a small share of it, anyway. Picked it up by osmosis at the fantabulous MoxieCon, the second of its kind, put on by the wondrous women of Quite Strong. Good lord, this is how I keep working. I get so dragged down with endless images pasted into Word files, last-minute printing “emergencies,” requests to “spruce up” PowerPoint presentations with “some graphics&#... »

Drabble Lab Round 4: Solitude

Drabble Lab Round 4: Solitude

Despite issues with logging in to the comments, last week’s drabble lab was great. Hopefully, sign-in issues will be resolved this time around; if you couldn’t get your drabble in for last time I’m sorry! I was really impressed this week with the breadth of interpretations of the theme. There were a lot of different interpretations, and they were all quite interesting! Read on fo... »

Brochure/Poster/Hat II, Electric Boogaloo

My name is… never mind what my name is. I am a spy. Or, I might be. There is certainly a certain probability that I am, anyway. What I am spying on and who I am spying for is irrelevant, for I have infiltrated the Chicago Skeptics and MADE THEM A NEW POPE. MUA HA HA HA HA, my plan to promote the Ministry of Silly Hats was a resounding success! And so was Chicago’s third* and LARGEST EV... »
