A recent trip to the St. Louis Art Museum, combined with a recent read-though of Neil Gaiman's American Gods (available on the web for free for the rest of March), have gotten me thinking about art, mostly of the visual sort. I won't say much about what I've been pondering, because if I start talking about art I'll show exactly how little I know about it. But I do want to broadcast a few thoughts.
I want to see more art about skepticism or skeptical ideas. I'm not sure how much currently exists, and in what form, but wherever it is I want to see it. If it doesn't exist, I hope people will start making it. If no one does, I can try it myself, but I don't think anyone will like the result. That includes me.
Take, for instance, my photoshopped picture at the top of the page. It's something I did in about twenty minutes after seeing a perfect picture for the joke. It's not art, it's a gag. But that's what we can expect from me. Don't leave this in my hands.
Send me some links to skeptically-themed art and I'll be grateful. You will be too, if James Randi, Ace Attorney has anything to say about it.
