Then Vermeer was Devoured by pageboy Then Vermeer was Devoured by pageboy
And Zach said "Let there be robot dinosaurs in our next assignment."

And thus, this abomination was born.

I've never painted or drawn a dinosaur before, so this was interesting.

Gouache. 21.5 x 19 cm.


[Edit 9/12/09] I was so surprised and honored when I found out this had been chosen for a DD! Sorry I can't thank each and every one of you for your comments, but I've enjoyed reading most of them (it will take me a while....) It's really great to see everyone's reactions to the subject matter. I would have never guessed dinosaurs and classical painting to be so popular!

Thank you!

~pageboy quotes "Let there be robot dinosaurs in our next assignment."...and behold--there was. Then Vermeer was Devoured is truly a magnificent homage to one of the greats. ( Suggested by tschudin and Featured by oilsoaked )
