Snorkelsaurus (Triceratops and Thalassomedon)
Special appearances by horseshoe crabs and a nautilus! My latest Derposaur creation, and my final piece from the Recycled Rain Project 2013. Noodler’s Ink and rainwater on Arches cold press 10”x12.5”
It took forever to get a good scan of this. RIP old photosmart, ere we meet again in the great beyond that is electronics recycling.
But they rejected ‘wibble’ from the dictionary?
That’s interesting, I’d wager “recumbentibus” comes from the same root as “recumbent”, as in, to lay idle. Not that strange a word when you think about it, just hard to work into a conversation.
I’ve been helping Grandaddy sort and pack for a big move and he gave me free rein of all his books! I’m so excited to read Don Quixote, and look at the incredible wood engravings in this edition by Hans Alexander Mueller. My webcam simply cannot do justice to them, I don’t want to crack the spine by trying to scan them, and I’m too lazy to find my camera right now. This book is from 1941, but I think the oldest one I have is my great grandmother Emma Palmer’s 1909 English Literature textbook (she even wrote her name in the front in loopy cursive aaa). I have to worry about water damage because I’m drooling everywhere.

This one started as practice drawing trees and ferns, the narrative came later. I always remembered Echo and her sassy mouth. Nobody sasses Hera though, she learned the hard way.

I’ve started posting new pieces on my website! Now, the real question is post them all at once or queue them? Hmmm….
I guess I’ll queue them all now and decide after I’ve written the entries.
A new Derposaur, the Kiteodactyl!

This started as an excuse to do a painting with a background. I think there were three different times that I thought I had ruined it irreparably forever, but I’m so happy it wasn’t! I’m so happy it’s finished though. This painting has been sitting around since last summer, ahhh it feels so great to be working through my queue of unfinished work.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if pterodactyls had pigmentation like parrots?
Yayyy new paintings!
