A few months ago I did an art pice on my iPad for this year's SkyTalks track at DefCon. I was pleased enough with it. That was originally going to be the end of my involvement with the project since I wasn't going to ba able to make it this year and I didn't have a ton of time. BK asked me for some assistance with the the badges and it caught me at a moment where I actually had a moment so I obliged.
After reducing my work to black/white/single color I was struck with the contrast of this piece versus my orignal piece. BK asked me to do the DefCon program page for SkyTalks as well and I had to make a decision. I agreed to do the page but I also made the decision to completely retool the main design, using the badges as an inspiration. Here is the result in wallpaper form:
Finally, here is the page that will be appearing in the DefCon program:
In short, there are some fun talks lined up and some great people involved. If you can make it to Vegas for DefCon 21 drop by SkyTalks and tell them you like the art!

Yesterday I had the honor of attending Slutwalk Denver 2013. It's an event that started after a police officer in Toronto made a comment that a rape victim wouldn't have been raped if she hadn't been dressing like a slut. As you might imagine there was a lot of reaction to this statement. Wearing sexy attire is NOT an invitation to touch. You know what causes rape? Rapists. No victim blaming, no "you should have worn something else". More educating perpetrators about what is right and what isn't. Let's do our part to change rape culture even as we partake in the sexy side of life.
