Welcome to Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs

Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs has been running since 2009, beginning on Blogger and moving to this WordPress-powered site in December 2017. Our focus is mainly on the evolving perception of Mesozoic life through art and pop culture, as well as interviews and book reviews. These are the good and honorable people behind the blog.

Victoria Arbour

Victoria Arbour is a postdoctoral fellow at the Royal Ontario Museum and University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada. She’s especially interested in ankylosaur palaeobiology, the evolution of weaponry in extinct animals, and Cretaceous dinosaur biogeography. Visit her website, including her excellent solo blog, at, or follow her on Twitter.

Asher Elbein

Asher has been writing and illustrating dinosaurs in one capacity or another for as long as he can remember. These days he’s a freelance journalist on the beat, covering folklore, ecology, pop-culture (and, yes, paleontology). You can read his work at, follow him on Twitter and see his art at

David Orr

LITC founder David OrrDavid is an illustrator and graphic designer for Blue Aster Studio and adjunct professor in the School of Art, Architecture, and Design at Indiana University. He has loved dinosaurs, paleontology, and natural history in general since childhood, always fascinated by the history of the rock under his feet and what tales it told of lost worlds. This led him to start LITC in 2009 and drives much of his creative work. You can see his natural history illustration portfolio at You can also follow David on Twitter , Instagram, and DeviantArt.

N. Puttapipat

Natee is an illustrator with a love of the arts and natural history, who within the Dinoblogosphere may be recognised (possibly with distaste) for drawing such things as Triceratops on a tricycle and ornately caparisoned Olorotitan giving rides to fine folk. As well as gradually bringing Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs into disrepute as a contributor, Natee also occasionally reviews toys and models of the saurian kind for the Dinosaur Toy Blog. You can also follow Natee on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Marc Vincent

Marc works in something vaguely IT-related, but has also been writing about dinosaurs (and especially dinosaur books and artwork) on the internet for some years now. Fascinated by dinosaurs as a child, his interest in them was piqued again in his early 20s when he learned how much the science had progressed in just a decade. Since joining the Chasmosaurs team in 2010, he’s been fortunate enough to meet all sorts of wonderful scientists, artists and enthusiasts through his little blogging hobby. And he does hope that he’s significantly less bitter and cynical than he used to be. Follow Marc on Twitter and read his reviews at the Dinosaur Toy Blog.
