Hi, I am Tim Barton, lover of science and the beauty of the cosmos. I started creating artwork when I was in high school and I was captured by the inescapable gravity of creating paintings of outer space using Photoshop. My own story is one of escaping from ignorance into rationality. I used to believe the universe was only 6,000 years old.
Lied to, and manipulated by preachers, I went about my vague existence without knowing what wonders were denied me.

Eventually, through the patient and polite efforts of famous promoters of reason and rationality, such as Richard Dawkins and Carl Sagan, I started to feel the vast enlightened joy of actually understanding things in the universe. It turns out, all you need is internet access and an insatiable lust for knowledge.

Today, I am an active member of Houston Oasis, a secular community where humanists from all over the city gather weekly, and I have dedicated my life to promoting reason.

I am available for commission. I created a giant Atheist symbol as a nebula, what if I were to turn your symbol of choice into a painting for your wall? Wow, or even your name! Damn that would be badass.

From my talk at Houston Oasis on Jan. 18th.  All about those pesky facts that change your opinions slowly over time until you can no longer fight them off.

The painting took about 16 hours start to finish.  I show about 6 hours of it in this time lapse video lasting 6 minutes.

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
- Aristotle, Metaphysics

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
- Epicurus

Audentiae - Latin for Boldness, fearlessness,

Do you know what the A is for? No its not anarchy or the avengers -_-
