I’ve been doing a lot of miscellaneous reading and thinking about Ruby.
This is in addition to the process of learning the language itself.
It occurred to me that while Ruby probably has a logo (the ruby gem
itself) it doesn’t have a mascot.
I’ve done some reading of past posts on the topic of a Ruby mascot,
but somehow nothing has come to pass.
A mascot is quite important, it serves as an identity to let people
become visually creative.
Take for example the BSD Demon (Chuck), the Linux Penguin (Tux), The
Darwin Platypus (Hexley).
Can we ask a graphics designer to develop a mascot for us?
One such artist who comes to mind quickly is Jon Hooper, the guy who
developed Hexley (http://www.hexley.com/).
If we ask nicely, maybe he would do it for us.
