One Million Giraffes

At Science Online 2010, Blogger Mama Joules told me about Inspired by wager between friends, the website is trying to collect one million pictures of giraffes in one year. At the time of this writing, they were up to 580,143 giraffes.

It took me a while, but I finally recruited a young artist from Elizabeth City to help! Ryan and I were babysitting a friend’s seven year old this past weekend. She arrived with a fondness for drawing dinosaurs. That enthusiasm translated well to giraffes. She used markers I got in college (~16 years old!) to make this giraffe:

Malena’s Giraffe

I was able to snag a shot of it on before it was circulated off the front page:

Malena’s Giraffe on!

It wasn’t as tasty as making Pi and Space Invader Chocolates, but it significantly less messy and just as much fun. 🙂

P.S. If you happen to submit a giraffe, let me know– I’d love to see it!

    According to NVC ( giraffes have the biggest hearts of all animals – they’re used inside the framework as symbols for empathy.

    As soon as I’m near a scanner and a pencil, I’m going to add my own giraffe to the collection. 😉
