Greg Beato has a great article at Reason Online regarding the dearth of artists and designers in the atheist community. As an artist myself, I've always wondered why there aren't more of us out there. With the rise of the "New Atheism," it's time to evolve beyond the Darwin fish and create some new memes for a new generation of atheists.
I partner with the fabulous folks at Cafepress to produce my holiday cards, shirts, and other merchandise featuring my artwork. I've been seeing a lot of Zazzle.com (another on-demand printer) products appearing on Froogle and in Google search results, so decided to test the waters of their marketplace with Winter Solstice postage stamps.
After customizing several postage stamps with my artwork, I received an e-mail stating that my Charles Darwin stamps were rejected because USPS guidelines prohibit "political or religious leaders". I'm still trying to figure out which one of those categories Darwin falls under.
