Dodo and boy sculpture by mumbojumbo

Dodo And Boy Sculpture by Alena Wooten, via her deviantART page.

I had the pleasure of working with the incredible Vince Nguyen here at Blue Sky on this piece! This sculpture is based on his character he designed for a children’s book. (I’ll try scanning in the drawing I used to create this scupt) I must say, these talented folks I work with in the design dept. sure keep me busy with all these “SIMPLE” designs. Hard and time consuming to sculpt, but so fun nonetheless!

And from Vince Nguyen blog, Louis and The Dodo Sculpt:

So here’s a beautiful sculpt of Louis riding a dodo bird by Alena Wooten. The character was shown in a children’s book called Louis and the Dodo. It was one of my first children’s book years ago and it’s still one of my favorite books I’ve worked on. Alena is a super star sculptor at Blue Sky Studios and I jumped at the chance to get her to sculpt anything for me.

And finally the very cute illustration with the original characters from the book Louis & the Dodo by Mark Shulman, illustrated by Vincent Nguyen:

Pickwick by akuma-neko.

This is Pickwick, the pet dodo of Thursday Next from the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde. Personally, my favourite character. Based off a drawing that I traced over in Photoshop using my tablet. (Yay! it works again!!)
I would have just coloured the drawing directly, but apparently the blue pencilcrayon I used for the under drawing wasn’t nonphoto blue.

Requiem for a Dodo

This came from a monoprint exercise- I reverse printed a typed prose, and traced in ink from beneath the plate. Same deal with the drawing.
Apparenty, my into to printmaking teacher hadn’t realized the Dodo was extinct. -And was also confounded by my process.

Dodos by Ursula Vernon

Little known to science, the Loch Ness Monster is not, in fact, a plesiosaur or a brontosaurus or any other saurian silliness. That would be ridiculous. Dinosaurs are extinct.

Obviously it’s a dodo.

The dodos love the art work of Ursula Vernon. She created all those mutant dodos and many other images, adding humorous descriptions to her works. Some of those images are from her site, and some others from her site on DevianART. The images can be bought on her site, Metal and Magic.

The Dodo

Once the king of all creatures feathered, the Dodo ruled with might and respect from the ground. The island of Mauritius was his kingdom until driven into extinction by Dutch immigrants. Could he be protecting the last remaining egg to carry on the powerful family line? The Dodo by Phil Hoch. Image also available on his deviantART page.
