Dodos are another favorite extinct animal of mine. I love the mystery of their existence and wish that I was given an opportunity to encounter and one day own one. I guess I will have to stick to getting one as a cuddly toy instead.
I am a recent college graduate in both Art and History with a minor in Classical Studies. For my thesis, I created by hand fifty small toys made from recycled toys and all natural materials. This small body of work was called Mixsters and each were based on monsters I created from my childhood.
