Dinosaur National Monument

junior-paleontologist
A special shout out to NPR for running a short piece on Dinosaur National Monument, which sits comfortably on the Colorado/Utah border. A. and I camped there a few years ago and it was a special kind of bliss. Their visitor center is built into the side of a hill which is actively being dug out for fossils. You can get up close and personal with dino bones, and even have your picture taken by one. It’s like Disneyland for geeks.

Colorado is a great state to live in if you love dinosaurs. They have a state fossil (the stegosaurus) and the venerable paleontologist Robert Bakker lives there when he’s not canvassing Wyoming for relics of a bygone age. They also have one of the best collections of dinosaur skeletons in the world at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

P.S. If you think the only good place to spot a dinosaur is in Colorado, think again. For a short time, you can find them in Cleveland.


dinosaur hunting license for sale

I found this unclaimed dinosaur hunting license. It is signed and sealed in Vernal, Utah, home to many, many dinosaurs. Since I don’t think I’ll be using it this season, I’m going to sell it to the highest bidder. Ever wanted to hunt a T-Rex? Here’s your chance! Biding starts at ten million dollars. Time machine sold separately.

5 day art challenge

Reid challenged me on the facebook to post three pieces of art a day for the next five days. Since this blog has been quiet lately, I thought I’d repost everything here. Today’s batch are all dinosaurs scanned from my sketchbook.

inktober 2015

For the first time, I participated in a fun October challenge. Called Inktober, artists make one ink drawing a day and post it online along with #inktober. You can then easily search for everyone’s contributions. It was a cool way to create a finished drawing every day for a month. I went the concept album route and drew all dinosaurs (with maybe one outlier). Since I don’t put much on this here blog anymore, I thought it would be interesting to post all 31 ink drawings. At last! A non-discarded couch or comic con post.

WonderCon, VanCAF, CAKE 2016

Although I still have a great time at every comic convention, I find myself with less and less to say about each. This year I’m grouping my first three shows in a single, easily-digested post. This is not to diminish my experience at each. If you met me at one of these shows, you saw that I was excited to be there. It really is a thrill each and every time. There’s the first hour of increasing worry that this will be the first show at which nobody buys anything from me. Then there’s the lunch rush. Then, from maybe 1-3pm, is when I get my most sales. I have to say, there is no caffeine as effective as selling my comics. It is a feeling that never gets old. For the rest of the afternoon I’m passing out postcards and trying to remain upbeat and engaged. By the end of the day I’m exhausted. I’ve been talking to my neighbors a bit more and looking forward to dinner. The close of the day is a mixed emotion: I’m thinking back over all the funny, interesting conversations I’ve had, ready to not be on my feet anymore, but also a bit sad to see it over. Fortunately, there is always another day and another show. So here’s to the first three of the year, and to San Diego coming in July.

inktober 2016

I participated in #inktober again this year. My series of dinosaur models, or dinonistas, was one of the most popular things I ever did on social media.


dinosaurs in space coloring book

 San Diego ComicCon is quickly approaching, and I will have a special book to sell while I am there!
My last Dinosaurs Coloring Book sold out, so I put together its sort-of sequel, the Dinosaurs in Space Coloring Book.
It goes very well with my First Dinosaur in Space prints, also for sale next week in San Diego.
Stop by my table, Small Press O6, and check out my dinosaur and Falling Rock gear!
