Pencil and paper 2008-2009
A fun series to do, one of my largest. The dilemma of shifting to dinosaur drawings or female figure drawings was solved one day with the seeming illogical “why not both”. One of my largest series (about 25), about 8 are currently at Progressive Galleries in Lancaster, Pa. The rest have been sitting around since my schedule hasn’t really allowed time or money towards framing them all. Hopefully soon I’ll make that happen and they will be able to grace a gallery wall.


update: Ceratopsian t shirts available!

    i really love your ceratopsian picture! and i was thinking about getting it tattooed on me sometime in the near future, but only with your permission, of course. (:

  3. This is amazing work. Fantastic concept of mashing the allure of the feminine body and dinosaur heads. paleontological porn.

  4. Definetly loving the fact that their original heads aren’t there. Have you ever drawn women with electrical devices as heads such as: tvs, computers, lamps, toasters, and etc. I think that would be interesting.
