Trendsetting 2: Return of the Dork

A few weeks ago I told the story of the Pioneer Dork and how he's catching on in dinosaur scale diagrams thanks to the ones I've been doing for Wikipedia over the last four years. Well this is getting out of hand, because now there is an actual t-shirt company marketing a shirt about the Dork's suicidally placid wave.

You can buy the official Dork t-shirt here for US$18.95. I don't see a dime of that but I'm looking at this as more of an homage (it doesn't even use any of my original silhouettes, even though the Dork himself is public domain, which is why I started using him in the first place).


  1. Hahaha! That's a nice homage, even if it doesn't use your originals.

  2. I had the same thought as the one expressed on the shirt when I first saw you diagram of the dork facing down a pack of giant carnivores on Wikipedia's "Theropod" page. Thanks for all your work there!

  3. some people should not show their picture.
