Thanks for your clear-headed dissection of this painting's appeal, Betül.

I've always enjoyed doing portraits; perhaps I should do more of them.

(If you need a higher-res copy of the image, let me know closer to D-Day.)

Well.. I can draw Darwin and put up on DA, but I can ensure you that it won't make the same effect (not even close) as yours :)

I think you tell more than one thing in this drawing and that is the secret. When I first saw it (actually this is the drawing that introduced your blog to me, remember) I thought that it was very unique. That is why I liked it at first hand.

There are so many paintings on Darwin (him with monkeys - enough already!... ) and you don't just put Darwin up there. You actually hit to the point and reveal what Darwin actually did : he took steps - right? What is the better way than actually saying this? Nothing. I like how you put the steps and say what is it (claiming the facts like a scientist) and then drawing the first tree he did for extra interpretation. A very original piece of work and it will be last slide of my doctoral dissertation as I told you :)

Thanks Betül!

This image has been fairly popular for me for a while. I love how much noize it has generated on DA; makes me think about it as a bit of a catalyst to discussion - which why should that be? Just because it's Darwin? That's interesting.

2009-02-19T23:17:00.000-05:00

Great news, Glendon! Especially something on Darwin & Evolution and on DA is a very big accomplishment. Thanks for sharing this :)

2009-02-18T08:51:00.000-05:00

Eric: I still find it amazing the power an image of Charles Darwin has to inspire casual spite in some people, and reasoned, passionate defense in others.

Ash: Thanks!

Whaddaya think, should we throw together a Naruto fan-fic where a skeptic comes in and explains the periodic table and tells them "the elements" is all wrong? ;-)

2009-02-18T08:49:00.000-05:00

Raptor: I'll watch your blog for announcements about DA!

Karen: I gotta watch that video! Animated you in the picture looks pretty zany.

Not Bernard: You did so well. And remember, it's not just the people you patiently engaged who may learn something from your responses, it's the countless other DA readers who may not know much about the issues at hand who will benefit.

2009-02-17T20:55:00.000-05:00

Congrats Glendon! Glad to see dA glorifying something that isn't shoujo or something that is on the verge of being pornography.

Way to go also for bringing dA some intelligent discussion that has nothing to do with Naruto.

2009-02-17T18:50:00.000-05:00

I went to and was amazed by the activity around the image when your twittered it. Some really good (and patient advocates out there!) Congratulations on the image once again creating a good discussion, and a DA quite the discussion!

2009-02-17T18:11:00.000-05:00

It's what art is all about, making people think!

I had to quit my discussion, we got absolutely nowhere despite my patience. The guy was adament that the presence of eyes meant that our bodies must have sensed light, and decided we needed to...err...sense it. Then we deliberately created bits to become an eye. Yeah.

Honestly, great job :-)

2009-02-17T16:43:00.000-05:00

This is exciting stuff. Congratulations and great idea to point us to those science-friendly artists who backed up evolution.

Yes, the internet is awesome. And as further evidence of its awesomeness, a high school student thousands of miles away in Maryland, whom I've never met, has made an animation about one of my projects which includes an animated version of me. *does jig*

2009-02-17T16:05:00.000-05:00

Yeah, the internet still surprises me, no matter in what aspect of life. The web has certainly been an amazing invention. We, Homo sapiens, are ceratinly creative.

2009-02-16T22:20:00.000-05:00

Thanks Heather! *dancing*

DA has some really massive talent. I'm still sometimes surprised by how much the internet has changed art and community.

2009-02-16T18:55:00.000-05:00

Congratulations! DA is a huge site so to be selected like that is quite an accomplishment. A well-deserving piece.

Speaking of Deviant Art, I'm now a member. So, be sure to look for "Rapt2540" on Deviant Art soon (My art anyway.)

2009-02-16T08:55:00.000-05:00

It's certainly not the kind of discussion I've often come across on DA.

2009-02-16T07:21:00.000-05:00

This is fascinating. I guess your work is controversial by virtue of its subject matter but to see this wave of activity around it...

And there you were struggling with another Darwin piece. Not only is this the kind of thing that can only happen on the internet, this is the kind of story that can only be properly told on the internet.

Good for you -- your thoughtful art provoked a lot of thought.
