Taxonomy of the Nerd by opteryx Taxonomy of the Nerd by opteryx
Had to come up with an educational poster, so I showcased my love of "nerdology." I plan on adding more to it when I get some time, such as the chic geek, comic book geek, fanboy, and goth. Original is 24"x28".... I think.

This is a big mushroom cloud of awesome. You should add the Harry Potter nerd (unless that goes under fanboy/fangirl). That would make my life.

Haha this is great. I'm a bit of a hybrid of a few of these XD

I've got quite a lot of Nerdus Rodenberrius Sapien on my mother's side, for one.

Great work :D

and the new nerd species devolop way to fast to catalogise them all - but great to see the main-species

sadly my species isn't there, but it's a minority (so far) ... the ones that are in love with everything biological/genetical

Oh boy. I've come to realize I'm in love with a nerd...the allegies...the awkwardness...heck, his name is even on the poster somewhere...o boy.

I love how they're all listed in an animal-species fashion. "the now-extinct greaser" part made me laugh. I agree with everyone up there, you should add more!

My plan is to add more eventually. Have two of them sketched out, just don't have the time right now.

Not bad additions actually. I've been working on Chic Geek and Fanboy. I was going to do Goth, but one of those 2 might work better. Thanks!

This is definitely in need of a Part II

If you do get around to more educational posters, I make a humble request of gamer nerds.

It was for a school project, so my time was limited. I have plans for at least 3 more nerds, hopefully it'll be ready to sell in time for the Vancouver Comic Con.

And thanks!
