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.
