Literally speaking, it’s a meat dish that looks like duck but isn’t. And it’s apparently characterized by a ‘distinctive flavor and artificial “plucked duck” texture’. Also, there is an obscure side character in George Herriman’s Krazy Kat called Mock Duck.
The Mock Duck Project started in 2001 as an experimental installation web site, and remains up as a web site that nobody ever goes to. I dusted off the name for this blog, which is basically just a forum for me to write about stuff with one hand while I hold my newborn child with my other.

A long-time resident of San Francisco, I now live in Berlin, Germany. I just recently moved here from Prague, Czech Republic, where I did art direction at Department of Design and taught design classes at Prague College. My portfolio site is www.danmayer.com.
Guest-blogger Krafty lives in Los Angeles and weighs in from time to time on a variety of subjects. My mother, meanwhile, offers her opinion of the blog in the discussion section directly below.
Thanks for visiting.
