We're almost 50% funded for the "Mammoth is Mopey" Indiegogo campaign. Jennie and I can use all the help we can get in spreading the word about the campaign and scaring up pre-orders.

I recently cut the amount of the pledge for custom illustrations, too! So there's no better time to hop in as a backer. Head on over to to join the fun!
Well, time to write my first DA journal entry. The occasion is an important one for me though, as I'm announcing a new campaign to get a special project into print, one I've been working on for three years.

Mammoth is Mopey: cover art by anatotitan

My wife, Jennie, and I have written a children's alphabet book called Mammoth is Mopey, which celebrates the stunning diversity of prehistoric life as well as the fun way these amazing animals live through language. We love reading with the children in our life and we wrote this to be a fun way for children and grownups to read and learn together.

I've shared works-in-progress of the book's illustrations, such as Vainglorious Velociraptor, and it's surreal to imagine we may be able to see them in a beautiful print form soon. As Emily Willoughby wrote in a lovely post at Tumblr, it is important that our modern view of prehistoric life be portrayed in all sorts of media aimed at popular audiences, and this is my way of trying to make that happen. Please head to our Mammoth is Mopey Indiegogo page to preorder a book - or contribute at higher levels to receive perks like 1" button sets, prints, posters and even custom illustration commissions from yours truly.
