New ???My Heart is Divided??? Tshirt Sorts It All Out

It is hard to dedicate your heart to any one thing. The best we can do is divide our passions up among the things that really matter to us. Please note that not all proportions may be accurate for all people… to compensate for this, we are considring making the Original Trilogy area larger in the next run of this design.

Check Out the Art of Michael Paukner

Some of the gorgeous art by Michael Paukner involve space related themes such as this updated poster of the Solar System as we know it in 2010. This image and others are available from his site in poster form. Much of his other work involves conspiratorial type pop-science (junk-science as most would agree) such as numerology, Nibiru (aka Planet X) and that crazy Aztec 2012 doomsday calender… but my impression is that much of this is just for fun.

I have also included this info-graphic on how an eclipse works which has to be the most attractive depiction of the phenomenon I have ever seen. If you want to see more of his work apart from what is on sale at his site, you need to check out this set in his flickr feed.
