This a big digital re-wroking of an old oil painting from the early naughties. Two Troodon_s watch some _Parasaurolophus_es walk by while they tuck into a tasty _Thescelosaurus.

Hi everyone, I’m here to talk to you today about TetZooCon. TetZooCon 2014 will be an awesome day of talks and activities at the London Wetland Centre on Saturday the 12th of July. It’s all about animals, real and sometimes imaginary, and should be both super interesting and fun.

Ever wanted to know why Giraffes have such short necks? Come to TetZooCon!

Want to know about newly described species of mermaid? Come to TetZooCon!

Want to know what amphibians have ever done for us? Come to TetZooCon!

We’ve sold about half the tickets, but I think we need a bit of a signal boost. If it sounds interesting to you, please consider buying a ticket. If you think it might be interesting to your followers, please reblog.

Germanodactylus cristatus inspecting some rock pools in Late Jurassic Germany.

New to my website, this is is an updated version of a painting I did in 2007. I’ve changed several details, including crests, the size of the germies, and detailing on the rocks.

Old Pictures

So, I have been organising my art folders, and discovering stuff. Old stuff I had simply missed when I was making my new website, old stuff that I never released, and old stuff that I never finished but probably should. I will be putting them up over the next few days.

I have discovered and old vector drawing call “The Screamer”, which includes layers named “the famous layer 3” and “the infamous layer 11”. I think I will start using that naming scheme in more files from now on.

Pretty young people are boring. The world needs more pictures of ugly old people.

I like cities okay, whether they are under the feet of the heroic Skybreaker, tipping over a whale in Capsized, riding on a train in Industrial Revolution, covered in crap in the distopia of Paper Planes, made of clarinets in Clarinetropolis, made of dinosaurs in Ceratosaurus and the City, minuaturised in a park in Little Autumn, in the middle of a giant octopus lady in Octopia, or growing very larger and more tangled in Metametropolis.

Mostly done in Adobe Illustrator, except for Capsized and Octopia, which are photoshop paintings. As usual, prints are on my website.

A Short History of Art

Let’s paint pictures of these animals and us killing them.

Let’s paint pictures of Kings and God and stuff. They pay the money.

Actually, let’s paint pictures of anyone that pays the money.

Photography eh? Look at this loverly paint and it’s pretty colours!

Pretty colours eh? Let’s give up on painting stuff and paint our very serious ideas.

Serious ideas eh? Here’s a serious endlessly recursive joke about serious ideas not being serious.

???

Profit.

What’s your short history of art?

Join us on Octonia, and see the seas.

A new painting after a bit of a break. Yes I’m going to hammer away at this giant robots theme. It’s a good theme.
