I started off doodling up some rabbit heads and then gave the central one a body and a lumpy tail. It probably would have ended up as a dragon if I didn't (apparently) get distracted by something shiny that I flitted over to so I could add it to my nest of gaudy trinkets.
Again with the dodos! I don't know why I have such an affinity for goofy-looking animals. I think maybe animals with obvious structural problems trigger some kind of nurturing instinct in me, e.g: THAT DOG BRED TO HAVE A SMASHED UP FACE HAS RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS; I WILL HUG IT
(though it was island tameness, and not its inherent wackiness that contributed to the demise of the dodo. SO WIKIPEDIA WOULD HAVE US THINK)
