The Dodo

The drawing of the day for 2/3/11 is a t-shirt design that I started developing which features the story of the dodo bird becoming extinct. From what I read, dodos were doing just fine on their little island until humans brought monkeys to the island. The monkeys ate the dodo eggs. In this image I have the monkeys using superior intelligence to trick the dodo. One monkey distracts the bird by playing the cymbals while the other one steals the egg. At the time I was working on this, I decided the story was too complicated for a t-shirt design, but I think I’ll actually finish this when i find time.
