Time is Running Out: Get Your Work Featured by Science Friday
Science Friday has been a trusted name in science journalism for over 25 years, bringing current and compelling science stories to an international audience of millions through public radio, podcast, video, digital, social, events, and educational programming. They're brain fun, for curious people.
This summer, Science Friday is inviting their audience to join them in a re-reading of Stephen Hawking’s popular non-fiction book A Brief History of Time. Their hope is that the uninitiated will glimpse Hawking’s mind-bending vision of the universe and lean in.
And they want your help.
“We’re looking for artists who can help us inspire the next generation of theoretical physicists, mathematicians, and science communicators by interpreting Hawking’s vivid depictions of the universe with art."
• 6 artists will be selected to create an original illustration that depicts a mind-blowing Stephen Hawking quote about the universe, space, time, gravity, black holes, etc. in their own unique style to size and resolution specs on a three-week turnaround.
• Selected artists will receive $400 and have their work appear alongside the inspiring quote and an artist’s statement on sciencefriday.com. The gallery and selected images will be promoted in Science Friday’s social media, newsletters, educational materials, and radio program.

Drawing on influences of science fiction and mythology, my current work explores the spaces between the supernatural and the mundane. An ambivalent escape, fantasy is often comforting and alienating all at once.
I'm Alycia Rainaud, a French graphic designer and digital artist, originally influenced and passioned about publishing and hybrid books. I started working almost two years ago as a digital artist also known by the name of Malavida, mostly experimenting with new technologies, digital painting, algorithms, and visual effects.
This is my vision about fairies, as creatures from natural environments mixed with unexpected objects. The isn’t a real explanation behind my works, it’s pure aesthetics. And everyone can find their own meanings.
Art must be free for all.
My aesthetic include everything is simple but charming and sophisticated at the same time. Over the yard I experimented a lot, coming from very basic handmade techniques to digital - which is the technique that I currently work with. I really love black lines and texture.
