• This just in: WE LOVE reader art! This piece is by Tyler and was submitted by her boyfriend, Ryan. We are told it is inspired by Neil Degrasse Tyson. He is inspiring isn’t he! Thanks to Tyler and to Ryan! And if you have reader art you want us to share send it in to contact link on the top of the page!

• I made some art of my own this week. It was a painting inspired by the mitochondria in cells. While I was researching it I found another artist who was inspired by these tiny power-houses. Take a look at Odra Noel’s Mitochondria art.

• Speaking of paintings, you know that famous Van Gogh self portrait? Research shows it’s probably not him at all.

• This weeks eye candy: Do a google search for science + sculpture. Go on, I dare you.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

    spirituality + sculpture = not so much

    Awesome, Amy — very, very cool! I love how it looks entirely abstract unless you’re familiar with organelles, like a hidden message for science geeks.
