awk, Jim lad

awk, Jim lad. by Drew Northcott: I love dodos. Their latin name is “Didus Ineptus” which is a joyful thing. I work in the games industry, and I try to sneak a dodo in to anything I work on these days. (my last game had a dodo shaped level). Anyhow earlier in the year we were talking about a game involving pirate dodos, so here is one.

PS.: Due to technical problems on this blog – many of you may have notice – we weren’t able to celebrate the International Talk Like a Pirate Day with this great pirate dodo illustration. I hope that in some place of the world isn’t September 20th yet, because this is late dodo celebration. Check the
Talk Like a Pirate Day 2007 at Bibi’s box.

Dodo Web

Dodo using a computer

I’m usually against animated gifs, but that one is too good to ignore. The image above is from the Geocities site Dodo WEB. The site has some known information about the birds, the origin of their name, the sad history about their extinction, images and links – almost all broken. Well, it’s an old site about dodos, and that’s why we can’t judge it. The best part of it are the original dodo illustrations, like the one above.

Update: Dodo WEB page is dead, as all the other Geocities pages. But, you can still check it on the wonderful Internet Archive Wayback Machine.

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.

No Dodos

Funny sign placed in some place in Nimes, France. It’s a pity that the sign “No Dodos” is redundant no matter were it was. Sigh. Uploaded by Mr Hyde.

Extinction of the Dodo

It’s a scene from the movie Ice Age, in which a pair of dodos keenly observes the fact that the last of the females have been killed. “Extinction of the Dodo” by E. Willoughby.

Ascent of Dodo 2

Unable to resist the small bug-eyed dodo-fish sketches, I did it as a quick watercolor/mixed media piece. I really like the dodo fish. I think he may need to meet the pink lizard some time… Ascent of Dodo 2 by ursulav. The evolution of Ascent of Dodo.
