science + art = ?

Please help a generalist brainstorm on what to do for a living. I'm finishing up a PhD in the physical sciences, and I love art and design. I'm happiest if I can constantly learn new subjects and if I can make things every day. How do I bring the parts of science and the parts of art that I love into the working world? [more inside]

Re-interpret and rock (and roll)

I'm a huge fan of science fiction book cover art (especially the 50s through the 80s) and I like to use ideas from them to make posters for my band. If you need examples: this should explain what I'm looking for. I'm wondering if there are existing resources for science fiction cover art or general science fiction art that mirrors this sort of style and substance? I especially need resources that are fair use, free to modify etc. etc. We use these posters to advertise our shows at places which usually have a cover charge -- so I will need content that I can modify to use "commercially".

Can you recommend good science sets or paint (non-watercolor) sets for an 11 year old girl? She likes to experiment and dabble in her room, and has asked about them as gifts. Thanks!

Books about the beginning needed.

I saw Cave Of Forgotten Dreams and loved it. Now I want to read more about early human history. Please recommend some good books on the beginnings of human art in particular and the emergence of human society and the beginnings of conciousness in general. I'm not a scientist and I'm not looking for a textbook, but I'm not afraid of a challenging read, either.

Wedding wet science and high art?

What's some great new bioscience themed art? The more hands-on and interactive the better. Mapping genetic sequences to procedurally generated pictured is all good and well, but does seem a bit trite and decorative these days. What's out there these days saying something in the intersection between wet labs and the gallery?

Art/Science Double Threats?

Are there any Great Scientists who are also Great Artists? If not right now, who was the last person who comfortably fit in both categories? For the purpose of this discussion, a Great Artist has produced museum quality work (or a great novel, or similar), and a Great Scientist has made at least one 'important' discovery or invention, however you want to define that.

Cool periodic table.

We're looking for a cool poster of the periodic table. This and this are considerations, but we'd rather have something more interesting. A poster of one of the early designs would be especially neato.
