Dodo Cerchio

Dodo Sul Lago

Marcello Cazzaniga sent me a nice e-mail with 2 those lovely dodo images:

I am Marcello from Italy I always follow your blog, I love Dodo.
I play figure ice skating in Italy, with some other adults like me …we are not so artistic so we use to call us Dodo group, because we are near to the extinction 🙂
But our motto is “I can’t fly but I can slide”.
I send you some images of some dodos that I designed for some pins and cards.
I hope you will appreciate them.

Sure I did! And thanks for sharing them Marcello.

Conservation Status by Aled Lewis

Conservation Status – Animals, Fantasy, Zombies T-shirt by Aled Lewis.

This design was originally based on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species but I noticed how many awesome creatures they missed out. So I added them in. I plan on screen printing these in the New Year and selling them via my website, so check back if you’re interested. Thanks!

Dodo’s Electrode Induced Behavior Study

Dodo's Electrode Induced Behavior Study

The animator and designer Evan Boucher sent me a link to one of his old projects: DIGM 560: Advanced Applications in 3D Interactivity featuring Dodo’s Electrode Induced Behavior Study. You can play with the dodo checking his reactions when certain areas of his brain are stimulated, making him happy, angry, frightened or sad. Sad dodo is too sad, better keep only on the 3 previous emotions.

Dodie Dodo Demonstrates a Dastardly Double-Jump

Dodie Dodo Demonstrates a Dastardly Double-Jump by S.britt.

Here’s my contribution for the second anniversary exhibition of Treeson, created by the mighty talented Bubi Au Yeung: flickr.com/photos/bubi […]
My piece is a six-layered print, my third such experiment using the Print Gocco. Unfortunately, this particular time the Gocco inks printed a bit dark for my liking, so I had to lighten them up a tad in Photoshop. I guess with Gocco, you never really know how they’re gonna turn out until you finish printing the last separation. I think from now on I should stick to prints under three or four colors until I master this new (to me) technology. I’d love to know if anybody’s tried using other types of inks aside from Riso (such as Versatex) and what where their results. I find that the Gocco inks are a bit expensive (for the amount of ink you get) and difficult to mix to create the exact color and opacity I’m looking for.

Running Slowly

Running Slowly by Leah Palmer Preiss, aka Curious Art. I loved it!

According to my trusty 1878 Chambers’s Encyclopedia of Universal Knowledge, “The birds were easily killed, being wholly unable to fly, and running slowly. Their speedy extinction after the islands began to be visited and settled, is thus easily accounted for.”

Maybe it was the shoes?
