Podcast Show Notes: Episode 28 – Prehistoric Animals and Asher Elbein

Podcast Show Notes

Marc, Niels and Natee essay a new and improved, that is, much more informal, news section, as we follow up on previous items and comment on two new palaeo media releases. This month’s Vintage Dinosaur Art is illustrated with the sculptures of Arthur Hayward and others and is an approach that we at least would very much enjoy seeing a return of in newer publications. Finally, our Lord and Blogmaster, David Orr, makes another very welcome appearance and joins Niels…

Podcast Show Notes: Episode 25 – Prehistoric Planet Special II

Podcast Show Notes

We’re back! After a few months’ break, the podcast resumes with a Prehistoric Planet 2 special and welcomes the return of palaeoartist, Gabriel Ugueto, who can finally tell us more about his role as concept artist on the series. We can wax lyrical forever about the show, and nary a soul can stop us. In the News The coming of ‘Philosoraptor’ was foretold. ‘Skull of a dromaeosaurid dinosaur Shri devi from the Upper Cretaceous of the Gobi Desert suggests convergence…

Podcast Show Notes: Episode 24 – DK Sculpts and Emiliano Troco

Podcast Show Notes

Our guest this episode is Emiliano Troco, a modern ‘old master’ whose traditional paintings evoke the imagery of the flowering of early 20th century palaeontology. Our Vintage Dinosaur Art title is Dorling Kindersley’s The Ultimate Dinosaur Book, another of those formative publications released in the same year as Jurassic Park, and one which can quite justly claim to have then lived up to its name. Can Niels resist making a Slam Dunk joke? Can Marc resist referencing Jurassic Park and…

Podcast Show Notes: Episode 23 – Invicta Toys and Rebecca Dart

Podcast Show Notes

Our first episode of 2023 celebrates classics of two different kinds: the masterly palaeoart of the Queen of #DrawDinovember, Rebecca Dart, which surely merits the stamp of ‘modern classic’; and, in what Niels has determined is a one-off for us and not the beginning of a foray into collectibles, the enduring charm of the Invicta dinosaur toys commissioned by London’s Natural History Museum, beginning in 1974. How does Rebecca work her timeless magic on her snapshots of deep time, and…

Podcast Show Notes: Episode 18 – Prehistoric Planet Special

Podcast Show Notes

Slightly later than planned, thanks to the vagaries of existence (ah, yes), Episode 18 is something of a Prehistoric Planet special, as Niels, Marc, and Natee take a brief sojourn away from Vintage Dinosaur Art to wax lyrical about the much lauded Apple TV+ documentary series. Could we possibly heap yet more praise onto it amid the universal acclaim? Palaeoartist Gabriel Ugueto was among the over 1,500-strong team of creatives and scientists who lent their powers to the series, and…

Dispatches from Himmapaanland: Dakota

Dispatches from Himmapaanland Illustration Museums

Dakota the Edmontosaurus dinomummy returns to public view in a new exhibition by the North Dakota Geological Survey’s Paleontology division, which opened just over a week ago on October 16th at the North Dakota Heritage Centre. Specifically, Dakota’s exquisitely preserved right hand and tail are currently on display. I’m sincerely honoured (and more than a little struck by Imposter Syndrome) to have been commissioned for an illustration for the exhibit; my first in a museum.…

Tree Spinosaur

Dispatches from Himmapaanland

I ne’er loved Spinosaurus ere now, forsooth. A playful (of course) drawing inspired by Brennan Stokkermans‘ photograph of an Agami heron and the proposed heron-like hunting and feeding habits of Spinosaurus — which do not for the present include any actual arboreal capabilities, as far as I’m aware. Though Niels is very much looking forward to marking it on his 2021 Spinosaurus bingo card. I should have posted this here sooner in the wake of the Spinosaurus Special episode of…
