Birders were excited when John James Audubon’s 226th Birthday was commemorated with a Google Doodle on April 26, 2011.
Hundreds of Google Doodles are now available on t-shirts, mugs, and other gifts, on Zazzle.com, the Audubon doodle included! It isn’t available on the complete Zazzle product assortment, which is too bad, because I think it would be suited for things like Zazzle’s custom binders, rectangle stickers, and iPhone cases, but it’s still available on some cool things.
The design has a white background, but you can use Zazzle’s customization tools to make the white parts of the image transparent on the canvas print, so you can make a plain white background a bit more interesting. I added a light yellow wash to the example below.
Unfortunately the customization has been turned off on the apparel and other products, but they have picked out suitable shirts for this design.
Coincidentally, I’ve just added a bunch of vintage Audubon print work to the MagnificentFrigatebird shop. They are in the Historic Bird Illustrations section. Everything here is totally customizable, so feel free to play around with backgrounds, changing product styles, and adding your own text or images!
