TAM2012 – A Life of Art and Skepticism

This past July, skeptics gathered at the Jame Randi Educational Foundation’s annual conference, The Amaz!ng Meeting, in Las Vegas, NV. I spoke about how my life as an artist influences my interest in skepticism, and how being a skeptic has an impact on my work in the arts. Now, the talk is available in its entirety, online!

My upcoming appearances are CSICon, in Nashville, TN, October 25-18, and Eschaton 2012, this November, in Ottawa, ON.

I’m also broadcasting a live OnAir hangout with my friends, Kyle Hill, Frazier Cain, Robert Blaskiewicz, and others for my second LIVE Manga Doodles show. We chat about geeking stuff while I draw custom ordered manga sketches for viewers. You can reserves yours by checking on the event, here. Hurry and get yours, now!
