Need the perfect gift for that special skeptical someone? Never fear! (Purchase here). In this new portrait, a young Richard Dawkins is depicted raising the evidence: an exquisite Echiocerasammonite fossil. Dawkins’ sweater and shirt are comprised of the writings of Charles Darwin as reprinted in The Portable Atheist, while the fossil is composed of clippings from the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The spiral twirl emanating behind is composed of the nucleobases of a genetic code. I will be producing a limited number of these posters, which will start shipping January 3rd. To repeat, these posters will not be available in time for Christmas deliveries. Purchase here.
I just got the news, via NY Times notice, that one of my favorite writers of all time, Christopher Hitchens, has passed away at the age of 62 from esophageal cancer. In honor of his passing, I’ll donate half of all proceeds from the sales of my poster portraits of him to the American cancer society for the rest of 2011.
May his spirit, for lack of a better word, live on.

I was going to type a description of Emile Zola, but then I thought “why compete with Wikipedia?” I’m especially fond of Zola’s role in the Dreyfus Affair. To see more art please visit http://www.adriancovertart.com/Adrian_Covert_Art/Home.html
