Dimorphodon and Scelidosaurus by the Sea by anatotitan
Dimorphodon and Scelidosaurus by the Sea

In Early Jurassic England, a Dimorphodon and Scelidosaurus lounge near the seaside… but what did they just hear?

Charlie and Ajax by anatotitan
Charlie and Ajax
This is my first pet portrait, commissioned by "Mammoth is Mopey" backer Sarah Yee. I was really excited to do this, since I'm a dog person through and through.
Deinonychus is Diligent by anatotitan
Deinonychus is Diligent
This piece is a commission for EWilloughby , who was one of the generous backers who opted for custom illustration perks in the Indiegogo campaign for my book "Mammoth is Mopey." Done in the style of the book (well, just a bit more elaborate), this Deinonychus represents Emily's studious nature. Remembering that I'd remarked that an Eastern Towhee I photographed reminded me of one of her lovely dromaeosaur illustrations, she suggested I try out that coloration, and I think it worked really well.
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.
