Google Doodles

If any of y'all have ever been curious about Google's holiday & event logos, check out Dennis's latest post to the GoogleBlog:
"My name is Dennis, and I'm the guy who draws the Google doodles. But the doodle tradition started here before I did. The first doodle was produced by (who else?) Larry and Sergey, who, when they attended the Burning Man festival in summer 1999, put a little stick figure on the home page logo in case the site crashed and someone wanted to know why nobody was answering the phone."

  2. Very Cool! Dennis does some marvellous work. I actually had the honor of designing some of the early google doodles myself. Shame I never had the 'thumbs up or thumbs down' experience - it was all done over the phone back then, as I was based in Santa Monica. Check them out on google.com or on my site at www.marsdencartoons.com. All the best!
