chromatic, that's a really good idea! So good that I gave a stab at it.
It's still a work in progress (I did it in one hour, just a rough sketch), but you can have a peek here.
I mostly need to detail the guy a bit more and find a better way to draw the planes...

Comments are more than welcome!

Update: An improved version is available here. It still needs some polishing, but at least, there's the Camel.

    OeufMayo, you just totally blew my mind. :-)
    Where's the camel, though?

    If you're going the poster route, I think a camel-headed monk (maybe based on Sean?) could be good. Probably a joke that requires more development time, though.

Biggles- Re: Design quest: Perlmonks wants you!

    Great idea and great picture!

    Does any-one else round here remember Biggles? I never thought I would be posting about him here :) For the uninitiated Biggles was a fictional WWI pilot in stories by Capt WE Johns. To bring it back to perl when Biggles was in 266 squadron flew a Sopwith Camel! And to bring it back to the monastery, by some kind of weird pattern matching I have always thought of Sopwith when I have seen the SOPW around the monastery, could it be-

    Seeker of Perl Wisdom in Transcendent Hack

    ++ to any-one who can tie all this together in a piece of monastery wear :)

    Coming back to the real world now :) I also think the picture desrves a camel somewhere and I thought that the "Programming Republic of Perl" logo as a patch on the pilots bomber jacket would be perfect. (I know it's not strictly monastery wear but I would buy a jacket like that :)
