La Mente di Darwin has launched!

This certainly is a busy year for Charles Darwin. Man gets around.

My Darwin Took Steps image has been busy as well. Shaking with excitement, I went to the post office to pick up a package this weekend: La Mente di Darwin is here!


A few months ago I was contacted by science-philosopher-now-author Andrea Parravicini about using Darwin Took Steps on the cover of his first book, La Mente di Darwin. Negotiations with Negretto Editore went smoothly, despite the image having appeared on two other publications this year, Open Laboratory 2008 and Secular Nation magazine. Advice: always be upfront with this type of thing with all parties.

Thank you to Andrea Parravicini! I wish I knew Italian.

The book has launched and is available for sale here. From what Andrea has told me, it generated some good buzz at the Fiera Internazionale del Libro in Torino. Cheers!

Andrea Parravicini also signed my copy, which is awesome.

I've never gotten a chance to congratulate you on this painting. It's fine work, and it's realyl cool that it's found some use in this fashion!

Thanks a lot ScottE!

It always means a lot to get compliments from artists who understand what I'm doing. :-)

Cheers!
