I've played around with some shirt ideas and, as much as I love them, can't actually make the shirt without the art I need. These would most likely be entirely private (just for me and a few friends and the artist themselves if they wanted) unless the artist was comfortable with them being sold on a store like Redbubble or something like that. I'm not sure if there's a way to split payment between multiple people with Redbubble, truth be told, but I'm sure there's a way to do something along those lines. 

If anyone would be interested in illustrating some natural history themed artwork for these shirts please let me know. I'm more than willing to discuss pricing for the art if there's someone who does commissions and needs some work. Shoot me a PM and we can talk details!

Here's a few of the shirt ideas, for anyone interested. 

  • Progression of herbivorous tetrapod heads starting with Eocasea and ending with Bos and Edmontosaurus in simple lateral profile lineart with the title "MASTICATION: CHEW OR DIE TRYING" 
  • Skeletal Allosaurus fragilis is classic theropod death pose entirely in white to be printed on a black shirt.
  • Reveal shot of the original Jurassic Park (the lake scene) but with Brachiosaurus replaced by ostriches and Parasaurolophus replaced with helmeted guineafowl in simple style, likely with some snarky caption pertaining to the dinosaurian nature of birds.
  • Ceratosaurus dentisulcatus gorily ripping into a dead Dacentrurus armatus
  • Panoply of ornithopods, small species in front and largest species in the back, with the caption "ORITHODODA: MORE THAN JUST THEROPOD FOOD" or something along those lines. Would include Hypsilophodon foxii, Dryosaurus altus, Iguanodon bernissartensis, Ouranosaurus nigeriensis, Corythosaurus casuarias and a few more.

I've been fooling around with Paint.Net, Paint XP, GIMP, and a few other art programs in an attempt to make a decent looking archipelago system for a project. Does anybody have any advice about this? I desperately need suggestions/help because I can't start this project without a map.

Does anyone know someone I could request/commission skeletal reconstructions from? I need some to accompany a new project but can't think of where to get them. Anyone interested or know someone who would be? If so please send me a note ASAP!

In addition to my future evolution project (and a handful of other spec-evo projects that are still too early into development to share) I've also decided to take on something somewhat cliche, a speculative Earth with no K/PG extinction. This has been done over and over and over but I feel very strongly that I can bring an original and plausible look at what an unending Mesozoic would look like. I'm currently fleshing out the world itself, and I have ideas that are as far reaching and complex as Specworld was during its peak. Would there be any interest in such a project, and as I always end up asking, is there anyone who would be willing to do a bit of concept art for me? I'd love to hear feedback and questions from anybody who has them!

Who would be up for helping me design a few tattoos. I've never had a tattoo before but I'd like a few of various natural history related subjects. I'll list them below, let me know if anyone would be willing to give these a shot! If nobody responds for a month or so I'll look for an artist I could commission the ideas from. Any help is appreciated!

  • A complete Deinonychus skeleton in the classic theropod death pose (solid black, for my forearm.)
  • A rearing basal sauropodomorph (inspired by Plateosaurus, preferably with some sort of fuzzy integument) mirrored by a rauisuchid or ornithosuchid rearing with its jaws gaped. (can either be lineart, detailed sketch, coloured, doesn't matter to me. Eventually it will be a coloured piece but any of the three is appreciated as a visual starting point. This will be a fairly large back piece!)
  • A bearded dragon in a threat pose facing towards the viewer. (This will be on the upper portion of one of my breasts)
  • A drepanosaur (no specific species in mind) climbing upward with its tail curled around my arm. (This will be for my other forearm)
I have a few more in mind, but I'd like to get one of the simpler ones here first and see if tattoos are really something I'd like.

The "Welcome to Jurassic Park" scence always makes me cry, now it'll tears of joy and tears of sadness at once.

In attempt to keep an upbeat tone, as he always seemed to have, let's celebrate his long life and incredible career instead of depressing ourselves that he is no longer with us. I hope I won't be the only one watching Jurassic Park tonight....

I'm not giving away too many details yet, but I'm undertaking a huge project to recreate Skull Island relying only on actually evolutionary processes rather than monster-making which the King Kong films have used. I plan to create a website as a sort of Guide to Skull Island, similar to the 2005 World of Kong book. If I'm to create this site, however, I'll need some artists onboard. I've already enlisted the talents of :iconking-edmarka: and I'd really appreciate any other help I can get! Comment here if you're interested or have any suggestions. Send me a note if you have any questions. Once I get a small team and some art together I'll post some general information about the project and hopefully a really fantastic project will be born!

I'm preparing to start my first large-scale modelling project! I'm going to be building a full scale Utahraptor head complete with feathers and taxidermy eyes for realism. I'm pretty sure I know how to go about making a "skeleton" (sculpting wire, possibly some wood if needed), modelling claw, numerous sculpting tools for detailing and whatnot, and a few paints. I'd really appreciate the help of anyone with any experience in taxidermy, animal sculpting and modelling, and really anything related that they can help me with this. If you're willing to provide any tips or help you can it'd be much appreciated. Anything from suppliers for taxidermy pieces, modelling tools, books, anything at all. I'll be posting progress as I make it! Thanks everyone!

I currently have three projects that I have scans, stories, and information ready to be posted. Leave a comment for what you'd like to see!


Synapsizoic: Speculative Evolution project in which the Permian extinction only wipes out 10% of life. Goes from Triassic to 100 years from Modern Day. (Scans, Stories, and LOTS of Info ready)

Magaron: A Kaiju series drawing heavy influence from Godzilla, Gamera, and Ultraman that focuses primarily on a mutated dinosaur and its battles against numerous foes ranging from prehistoric monsters, mutants, aliens, and mecha (and a few other things). (No stories yet but lots of sketches and info.)

Mechaiju: An open world game project based around piloting Mechs and battling monsters. Similar in concept to Monster Hunter, but with Mechs. (Sketches and Info, stories coming soon!)
