  A* art shows in May & June; Martian elephantApr 20, 2012 11:29 AM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:My work will be shown at the delicious chocolate/coffee/tea shop Chocolat Vitale in Seattle's Phinney neighborhood in May and June.

May is a group show, with the opening on Friday, May the 11th, from 6-9 pm. I'll have two framed prints of my digital work in the show; it sounds like they'll have a lot of artists, so the opening should be quite a party!
 
Then the following month I have the place all to myself, and will try to fill it up with both digital and traditional work. This solo show opens on Friday, June 8th, from 6-9 pm.
 
Stop by and say hi, check out my art and their chocolate (man, it's good).

An elephant on Mars? When pigs fly! But some clever analysts monitoring photos taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Oribiter found a lava flow with a definite pachydermal appearance, at least from orbit:

This Yahoo! blog thing where I found the image link says the lava flow is no more than 100 million years old, which is pretty recent in planetary terms. Lava flow and elephants graze no more on the red planet, but at least we have this natural formation to hatch conspiracy theories about now.
 
(That blog article mistakenly calls the "Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter" the "Mars Reconnaissance Rover." :P)
