Hey palaeo deviantARTers, if you have been living under a social media rock for the last few days, you might not know that I have co-written and illustrated a book on dinosaur art which you might like. Find out more about it here: http://irregularbooks.co Also, just a reminder, I don't upload to dA anymore, you should visit my site http://johnconway.co for details on how to keep up with my latest stuff.

Okay, probably not really, but I noticed that I barely ever check dA. Partly this has to do with having two accounts, splitting my focus. So I've decided on a massive web simplification: I have a new website, http://johnconway.co , and I will be using the twitters to update nyctopterus (https://www.deviantart.com/nyctopterus). There will no longer be a split between palaeo, and non-palaeo stuff. If you have a twitter account, follow me, because I have an embarrassingly small number of followers now (11). I'll even follow you back! Get it while it's hot

I thought after my last journal, I should clarify my position on the whole GSP dealy. I think his statements on the extent of his copyrights are just wrong. Hilariously wrong. On the other hand, I think his statements about his grandiose position in palaeontological art are true, especially if we consider dinosaurs. His influence is vast, as an excursion into the galleries of nearly all of you will attest. I even think the he is more influential, and better, than Charles Knight (gasp!). I've never understood this reverence for Knight. It's like every time he's mentioned, we have to reaffirm him being the best palaeoartist of all time hallo

Could someone inform me on what type of digital art program or app or whatever that John Conway uses. It would be much appreciated

Propably photoshop. Really it doesnt matter, without his knowledge and skill as artist program is just a tool.
