A big one for our twentieth, as today we discuss what is, so far, probably the most influential palaeoart book of the 21st centruy: the seminal All Yesterdays, by John Conway, Memo Kosemen and Darren Naish, which came out ten years ago (insert obligatory reference to how old we are). The book is famously full of outlandish and speculative takes on dinosaurs andotherprehistoricanimals and shook up the palaeoart world like a whirlwind… but does it hold up now? In anticipation…

Greetings, one and all! Today’s episode features quite a contrast: the na├»ve, childish creatures illustrated by Hillary Stebbing in her 1946 children’s book Extinct Animals, contrasted against the gnarly, outlandish modern work of Zubin Erik Dutta, a true up-and-comer in the palaeoart world. How do horror and pin-ups influence dinosaur art? Does every ceratopsian scrap gets its own genus name? What on earth is a Jakapil? And how did we end up with a dinosaur book with no T. rex…

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…

It’s our one-year anniversary! In this insightful episode, the Chasmo Crew discuss Maidi Wiebe, another unfairly forgotten female palaeoartist whose body of work includes masterpieces for the Chicago Field Museum, stepping into the footsteps of Charles Knight. But does the book, What Is A Dinosaur, adequately show off her talents? Marc then talks to the renowned palaeontologist, author and illustrator Darren Naish about his recent adventures in science and publishing. Is the TetZoo podcast cancelled FOREVER? What was up with…

The journey off the beaten path continues as Niels interviews Scottish filmmaker and animator David Armsby about his upcoming Dinosauria series, an anthology of short animated films about dinosaurs.
