"Remember that as science artists, our feeds are filled with the very best of the internet: exciting scientific discoveries and delightful, disturbing, intriguing art. We are creating sciart utopia. We win."

I believe in the optimism in this quote just as much as when I wrote it last month and I should remind myself of it more often.

This looks interesting. A transhumanist's children's book.

Here is an artfully executed video trailer accompanying my illustrated children’s book “Death is Wrong” – an educational primer regarding the feasibility and desirability of indefinite life extension. The video was created by Peter Caramico and is narrated by me and my wife and illustrator Wendy Stolyarov. It incorporates some of the illustrations from the book and discusses our Indiegogo campaign to spread the book to 1000 children, free of cost to them.

After almost 7 years of having a Facebook Fan Page, I am letting mine go dormant. I have over 600 fans (who are awesome) but with Facebook throttling who sees updates unless I pay, only about 10% are getting through. 

Following +Katie McKissick 's lead with her own FB Page, I am leaving a placeholder on where people can find me as the final post. 

Thanks to everyone who has me in Circles here on Google+!  A much more lively community. Please share this post and let's get more science and art fans on Google+.

Your post didn't show up in my Google+ stream :( ... I only found it because of a reshare by fellow artist +Juan Ochoa .

I really hate that Google+ does not provide an option to have all of someone's posts show up on my stream. The default is to only show a fraction of the posts. When they first implemented this "feature", they at least provided the option to manually set a circle to show all posts. But before long, they eliminated that option.

I have all of my circles set to the maximum level (show "more" posts), but that's not good enough.

For anyone interested in using images in #scicomm there's a hangout starting now with Neil Shubin and illustrator Kalliopi Monoyios about You Inner Fish!
 
SA blogger and biology lecturer +Joanne Manaster along with her cohost from the Read Science! program Jeff Shaumeyer will host a live chat at noon EDT on Tuesday, April 22, with paleontologist Neil Shubin and his illustrator Kalliope Monoyios (who also blogs for SA). The discussion will focus on , "Your Inner Fish," a 3-part series currently airing on PBS based on Shubin's best-selling 2009 book by the same name.

Story
Tagline
Art in Awe of Science. Testing the hypothesis people crave surreal scientific illustrations.
Introduction
The Flying Trilobite, my blog, is updated weekly, featuring in-process artwork and commentary.  (All artwork protected and shareable under Creative Commons Licence, see my blog for details.)

Symbiartic is the new Scientific American blog about art+science that I co-curate with scientific illustrator Kalliopi Monoyios and Katie McKissick. 

I'm a fine artist and illustrator using oil paint and digital media inspired by evolutionary biology. Much of my work is inspired by playing with ideas about fossils and organisms.

My artwork has illustrated books, magazines, museum display, blogs and tattoos, illustrating the links between science and art. I remain available for talks, freelance and contract work. 
Education
