So I was drinking with friends last weekend, and the subject of the dinosaur art show came up. Next thing we knew…
As always, you can find this in .
Whipped up a brand new dinosaur tee last night:
As always, you can buy it in .
Edit: by popular demand, here’s a with a larger raptor, centered in the design.
This week’s t-shirt just had to be another dinosaur, with the show announcement a couple days ago.
You can buy it right here .
Facebook event page is here , and in case you’re not on Facebook:
Whether you love the ferocity of the mighty T-Rex or the docile nature of the brachiosaurus, dinosaurs hold a special spot in most of our hearts. As children we were fascinated by these ancient creatures and for many of us, the fascination never died.
It certainly didn’t for artist Bret Taylor, and he is celebrating them with an art show of earth-shaking proportion.
So join us on Oct 13th and celebrate all things dinosaur. The show starts at 2pm and is kid friendly until 8pm, at which point we invite the over 19 to stay and celebrate with us. There will be dinosaur art and dinosaur collectibles, you may even find a few snacks for both carnivore and herbivore. Non-alcoholic refreshments will be available and should you choose to indulge in an adult drink or two, you are more than welcome to bring your own, but remember that until 8pm this is a child friendly show.
For more information on the artist:
Kid and adult friendly show 2pm – 8pm
Afterparty (adults only) 8pm – midnight
Imagemaker Photographic Studio, 210-2075 Yukon Street, Vancouver
Thanks as always to my agent, who continues to amaze and astound me with her knowledge, skills and attention to detail.
A brand new piece in the t-shirt store tonight. Special thanks to my agent Tess and my friend Lynn for their encouragement on this one. And to Cynthia for wanting to get together and draw last week.
Oh, and you can buy the shirt right here .
Okay, now that the Metal Flake Remix show is out of the way, it’s time for…
… more dinosaurs. Spinosaurus :
(Another one I first saw in the Extreme Dinosaurs exhibit.)
At long last, a new dinosaur. This is another one I saw in the Extreme Dinosaurs exhibit, the Carnotaurus:
Still plenty more to come. Maybe another T-Rex?
Shockingly, yet another daily-picture project has gone off the rails in a major way. Theoretically, the dinosaurs should’ve been done almost a month ago, but no dice. Work and life have gotten in the way, as they often do.
At any rate, I’m finally making use of the photo reference I shot at Science World last weekend. This particular beastie is from the same family as the triceratops, protoceratops and kosmoceratops. Can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called, but hopefully some kindly and knowledgeable dinosaur dork can fill me in:
There is much news on the dinosaur front, my friends. Many more of them to draw – I went to the exhibit at Science World yesterday with friends, and I got tons of reference photos and ideas.
They had full-size, moving, interactive mockups of the dinosaurs, plus several fossil skeletons:
Finally back to the dino project tonight, with the alectrosaurus:
Really enjoying drawing the carnivorous beasties more than the others.
Hey there. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Been caught up in a couple of large paintings, and of course, being sick.
Fortunately I’m recovering, so here’s an apatosaurus for you folks:
In other dinosaur-related news, the T-Rex piece from a couple weeks ago is now available in my print store . And for today (Leap Day) only, everything in the store is 25% off. The code to use is LEAP25.
Okay, so things have delayed a little by personal matters the past few days. But without further ado, here is your latest dinosaur, the Stegoceras:
Not the most handsome creature in the Jurassic era, to be sure.
In our latest installment, the guest of honour is the Ankylosaurus:
Say it with me, now: “Compsognathus.”
I love these little beasts. Apparently they were about the size of a turkey.
Six dino illustrations down, twenty-three to go.
Another fun day in the studio – woke up early, puttered around the place for awhile, and finally buckled down to draw this Hadrosaur:
This has definitely been the most fun dinosaur to draw yet, although the T-Rex did come close.
So after a herbivore (“veggie-saurus”) last night, I wanted to draw something a big more… ferocious. Enter the Allosaurus:
Nasty creature. Apparently he could jump, too.
Day three brings us the mighty Stegosaurus:
(Are Stegosauri mighty? I’m not even sure. I just know I’m lovin’ this project.)
Well, all the excitement over the Triceratops earlier led me directly to Mr. Tyrannosaurus Rex:
Banged this one out in a couple hours tonight. This project is so much more fun than the shotglasses, it ain’t funny.
