I'd Like To Copy : Dinosaurs


One of my current work projects is a non-fiction book about dinosaurs. A couple of weeks in, I can confidently pronounce dolichorynchops, know why a quetzalcoatlus is called a quetzalcoatlus and hazard a good guess at what gallimimus would’ve eaten for dinner last night were it not for that pesky comet. According to Julie, I also have the power to give people ‘arms like a velociraptor’, but that’s a tweet for another day.

For now, I’ve taken a little creative inspiration from the slightly less visual side of my job and gathered up a few fun, dino-inspired images. With two small nephews who are just learning what a brontosaurus is (was?), it’s a fairly safe bet they’ll be handy for reference long after the book is done, dusted and sitting on their shelves.

The nerdosaurus is superb! I'd love to see him on a wall in my house, sigh…

Just wanted to say hello as you posted one of my images ( the dinosaur on top of the ice cream stand). Also, you posted the photo on my birthday! Cool blog/website. All my best.

Why do the names of dinosaurs are so difficult to pronounce. I hardly even know the names of modern animals and those are the only ones I can pronounce well.
