I was really upset and I was going to draw some stuff about how upset I was, but then I started listening this wonderful Radiolab reading from Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics—a story which is both beautiful and personally nostalgic—and created some much calmer sketches. Okay. Deep breaths.

Pen & photoshop.

Happy to help!

Veeerrrryyy loosely based on the “Emergence” rebroadcast Radiolab did a few weeks ago. Mostly I just wanted to draw cicadas. Who’s ready for brood II?

DAMN. This is so good. 
(Seriously though, is everybody ready for Swarmageddon?)

Radiolab listener Christina Auldridge sent us a picture of her fantastic new tattoo, based on the brain parachute image from the Radiolab website.  We’re so in love with this work.  (Next time you’re in Oklahoma and want a sweet science tattoo, check in with Levi Hatch of Think Ink.)

Something to check out at the University of Kentucky Hospital: Lina Tharsing’s installation of a group of six paintings that reference images from the creation of the dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.  These paintings have been installed at the Albert BChandler Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.  (This is a UK Arts in Healthcare project.)

These paintings relate to her exhibition “Natural History” at Institute 193 in Lexington, Kentucky. She was recently interviewed about this work in Whitehot Magazine.  

Lina wrote to tell us she’d been listening to Radiolab while working on these paintings.  We’re honored!

To accompany the Radiolab short Vanishing Words.
The story discusses how Agatha Christie’s progressing Alzheimer’s Disease is visible through the declining vocabulary in her later writing.

Oh, so cool!

Sorry, guys, you can’t buy these books.  But aren’t they cool?  Emily G. A. Moody asked her graphic design students at Kapi’olani Community College to pick three Radiolab episodes and imagine how they would look as books.  You can see more of the resulting trilogies here.

Inspired by a story told by Astronaut Dave Wolf about free-floating in space. 
A bit silly maybe, but I found his story really touching. 
This is now available as a 12x 16 inch print over at my store in case anyone is interested! 

Damn, Radiolab listeners are so talented!  Here is the story, if y’all want to listen.

Because Radiolab is awesome, here’s a post inspired by this wonderful story!

Radiolab listener and all-around good dude Josh Siegel made some drawings inspired by our Goat on a Cow story.  Hey Josh: that is either one very tiny cow or one ENORMOUS goat.

This is a portrait of Bob Milne. I made it after listening to a story about him on Radiolab. He can listen to 4 symphonies simultaneously in his head!  

Love this!  Listen to the story here, and check out some of the other great drawings on Serena’s Tumblr.

"War Pigeons" by Jackie Dorage; oil paint on wood panel.
Jackie emailed to tell us this image was inspired by our story about war pigeons in the "Lost & Found" episode.  We get super excited when our stories inspire people to make art.  Keep it coming, all you talented people!
