My Bio
I'm an artist. Yes, that IS a surprise, considering this is an art site. I do many kinds of art, including writing. Been through good times and bad, something I am sure is true for many of us here. I love creativity. I love it when someone works hard to improve, which, as far as I can see, is exemplified by this site.

I do digital art and normal art: painting drawing, and many, many messes. Fantasy, dinosaurs, animals, abstracts, surrealism, portraits, and some kinds I have no names for are the kinds of stuff I do.

I am often iconoclastic and irreverent, but always respectful of honest effort, as I see it.

Paleold Art....

Sometimes I wonder what it is vis-a-vis dinosaur art that some people want. Should I trace skeletons? Should I use Gregory S. Paul's skeletals, or David Peters' fine work? Or the estimable and meticulous Scott Hartman or Qilong (Jaime Headden)? Or Nima Sassani (Paleo King)? Or Palaeozoologist? Or several others who do fine skeletal reconstructions? Or should I copy from their flesh restorations or trace movie screencaps from March of the Dinosaurs, all three Jurassic Park movies, Walking With Dinosaurs, Dinosaur Revolution, Dinosaur, or Speckles the Tarbosaurus, as well as several others? Or should I go back farther, to the days of Charles
