I really love the doodle Google created in honor of Jules Verne. The original artwork is 635 pixels wide. I converted it into a 1920 x 1200 wallpaper. It took about 4 hours to assemble this. A lot of thanks goes to Google!

I love how you can line up the ocean floor flora to fit inside the Google logo with the tall green one being the L.

Is that what it is? I thought it was an annoying fish viewing app.

Actually what I made is more like a recreation. At least 75% of it. It was actually pretty difficult to do.

Oh, I think your picture is really nice, thanks for doing that. It's this annoying google thing I don't like, my computer is too slow to have google putting gubbins on their page.

I never read any of Verne's books, but I did see that old Disney production of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, with James Mason and Peter Lorre.
I was rooting for the squid.
