Thankies for the watch <3

I love your gallery! It looks really unique! I especially love the ”Build a Bird” one. That really does sound like it could be a lot of fun :D

Glad you like it, and thanks for the watch! I don't have as much time to draw as I used to, but I manage to put up some new work every now and then.

You’re welcome and thanks for the watch back! That’s totally fine too. I don’t post often just because I work two jobs lol This is why I get a lot of drawings done. That way, when the new week rolls around, I already have something drawn up :D

I know you won't illustrate them, but what do you think are the most important dinosaur discoveries of 2020?

At least in terms of taxa I might have included in a "dinosaur highlights of 2020" drawing, I would have considered Allosaurus jimmadseni, Asteriornis, Aviraptor, Bagualia, Changmiania, Falcatakely, Nahmavis, either Navajoceratops or Terminocavus, Oksoko, Primoptynx, and Spectrovenator.

Interesting choices. Especially Allosaurus jimmadseni, a new species of a long-standing genus.
