Thank you SO MUCH to Nick Schofield and everyone at Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs for letting me ramble about everything "paleo", from art to memes. I am beyond honored to be featured on such a great blog!!!
Links to some of the influences I listed:
As many of you are probably aware, paleoartist Brian Engh recently began a dialogue on Twitter in response to what he felt was a rampant issue in the paleoart and paleontology community: negativity and hostility couched in criticisms that are often far too harsh and even personal.
