After seeing Glendon’s and Irradiatus‘s fabulous bio-art and Jason’s adorable invertebrate pins at Science Online, and also admiring Deep Sea News’ shiny new banner, I have been overcome with jealousy. I want a banner, too! For the last year and a half, the Oyster’s Garter banners have been little crops of my underwater photos – BORING. What’s the point of having a ludicrous name if you can’t have a ludicrous banner? We clearly need a be-gartered oyster mascot, but alas, I have no artistic or photoshop talent.
So I propose a trade. If someone out there wants to make an Oyster’s Garter banner, I will mail them their desired combination of homemade baked goods and goodies from the SIO/Birch Aquarium bookstore.
My only request is that the banner be a) awesome and b) family-friendly – no overly bawdy bivalves, please. Any takers?
