“On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, ‘Okay, this is the limit’. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your […]

Here’s more from his commentary: Years ago someone told me that 1,200 high school kids were […]

Making music is always fun. Making a record is even better. And by record, I mean a beautifully packaged and warm toned music recording on vinyl. I’m headin’ over to Third Man Records in Nashville to try out their refurbished 1947 voice-o-graph machine. It’s “the only working vinyl record recording booth open to the public […]

“It can be a warm kiss… It can be a sketch book, the camera…That’s strictly my way of feeling, I enjoy shooting a picture, being present, its like saying “Yes!”, “Yes!”, “Yes!”… Photography is like that, its “Yes!”, “Yes!”, “Yes!”.

Here are some process images of some new work. These are limited edition Legend of Tsuru-3 color woodcut prints on Magnani Revere Sandstone and Ivory White Cotton Rag. Pretty happy about the response at Greenpointers/BrainCave Festival yesterday. Some of these will be submitted to a new printmakers exhibit. Stay tuned.

Good stuff from actress and Neuroscientist Mayim Bialik talking about being multifaceted. “You can be as passionate and in love with science as you can be about literature or art.” “I don’t think there’s anything particularly spectacular about me that I have both acting interest and science interest. To me that’s just who I am.”

good work

Here’s the newest addition to our Stellar Science Series line up. The Nanotechnology poster. Pretty happy with how the design turned out as it was a culmination of much reading and ideas percolating for a long time. Patience is the key.

Good stuff from Photographer Brian Bowen Smith regarding silencing critics. He states, “I found that if you don’t really do it yourself and be really hands on with everything that you do, you let other people dictate what you want them to see” and “people are going to hate your shit but keep doing it.

I am sure that when Maria Sibylla Merian was born 366 years ago today, she dreamed of being honored with a Google doodle. Instead, this naturalist, botanical artist and scientific illustrator settled with just being one of the most significant contributors to the field of entomology. She studied and described the life cycles of many […]
