Surly Amy Has a #SciArt Patreon Project. Please support!

I was so inspired by all of the art and science panels at ChiFi this weekend that I decided to finally try to reach for one of my big dreams. And that big dream is to start painting again and making ceramic fine art pieces that are heavily linked to science. You only live once, folks and life is short. I know that this project may fail, but I’d hate myself if I didn’t try. Here is a li... »

LAWAAG, ATHEIST and Mad Art Cast Swag!

LAWAAG, ATHEIST and Mad Art Cast Swag!

In an attempt to help fund the many extracurricular art, science and atheism related projects I have started, I have set up a Cafe Press page where you can purchase fun shirts and other such swag with the Mad Art Cast and my Los Angeles Women’s Atheist and Agnostic Group logos. A small percentage of the proceeds go to me so I can help keep these projects alive and your support is much needed... »

Ryan's roommate's cat, Artemis, a tiny grey stripy thing wrapped in a purple fuzzy thing.

Mad Cats!

Here at Mad Art Lab, we kinda live on the intarwebs. This means we like us some cats. (Most of us, anyway.) We like cats so much, we’ve invited some of them to LIVE WITH US. Granted, they’re not always the best roommates. They don’t pay rent, they demand to be fed for free, they stomp on your head while you’re sleeping, they shed all over and hork on the carpet. Rude! Good ... »

Happy Belated Birthday To Us!

Happy Belated Birthday To Us!

This past Saturday was our 3rd birthday. And you may be wondering, “Why didn’t they do a post celebrating this momentous occasion?” Thing is, we were going to… I mean, we had planned on getting together for drinks and then we were going to brainstorm on putting together a post to celebrate entering our third year as Skepchick’s scrappy little sister. And… okay l... »

What Color is Your Sheep?

Last night in our Growing Up Godless panel during FTBCon, I mentioned that I’d been to churchy-camp without even realizing it was churchy as a child. Apparently there was a nearby church holding summer “camps” with a running theme of the Chronicles of Narnia; if I remember correctly, each year they used a different book from the series. Being the sort of kid who would waddle up t... »

The (Un)Censorship Project

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! Enjoy!     ________________________       Ori... »
