Jess Dodo

This Dodo started out as Zooey Deschanel, then turned into Jess from New Girl. And then neither. Or both.



In other news, the Awesome Possum Kickstarter for the natural science comic anthology was a success. We made 241% of our goal with 102 backers. Getting some proof printed today. Hopefully a proof of the book tomorrow. And if we're lucky, all the final prints by Friday.

This coming week, Abe and I will be driving to Vermont in a 16' truck and towing or car. It will be intense. So the Etsy shop will be down for about a week and if I can't mail the Kickstarter rewards before we move. They will be mailed from Vermont.

Exciting times at Chez Dodo.

Science items!

Wowee. Took long enough, but we finally have new items up for sale in the Etsy store. We will be adding more until finally everything is up! We might even add some original artwork. Should be some good stuff.

First up is the comic Angela made after learning all about the horseshoe crab in her Zoological Illustration class fall quarter. She made this comic over winter break because she was exploding with interesting information about this creepy little animal.

Then the poster that spawned the research that led to the comic. This poster was an assignment in her class first quarter, but the only rules were that it had to be about the crab. Which meant doing her own research. It was hard to pick a topic with so much information about these weird guys.

Last but certainly not least, the tapir poster! You have probably heard about Angela's fascination with tapirs over the last year or so. This is why. She knew she would have to pick a topic for her Vertebrate Illustration class. And tapirs are adorable.

So go grab your favorite posters and comics now. We also have lowered the price on the 2011 comics collection from $20 to $15 so grab it before they are all gone.

Injured dodos

Nisa for her stitches out today from having her fatty rumors removed. Poor thing. Here's what she looked like when we brought her home last Friday.


And here's what she looked like a few days later.


So it's no wonder Abe's theme this week is injured dodos
