Deadline Fever

Once again, the hot new blog is Art Evolved -- come for the ceratopsians, stay for the art.

Well, I'm just about crawling out of my skin. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines, and as usual it's only the immediate threat of blowing them that gets me working effectively.

There were the deadlines for Art Evolved. I did two drawings for the Ceratopsians Gallery, as shown in the logo above. Have I mentioned Art Evolved?

There's also the deadlines for the Thinking Big show, my initial foray into the world of fine art. I just got my canvas in to be framed today and I'm going to be sliding in just under the wire on that one.

My class assignments? Three prints and the initial version of my promotional packet for the Bonelands series of prints have been done just in the nick of time.

I'll be able to start breathing and get back to writing soon. Sorry to have been off the blog for the last couple of days.

I also owe an apology to M.L. Heath -- I forgot to mention his poetry reading at the LitPunk show. I'm correcting that post but still... Sorry, man. My bad.

Hey, awesome timing on the Gualala show! Adam and I will be up at St. Orres for our first wedding anniversary, staying April 4-6. Will definitely check it out!

It's nice to have the show up and finished. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about my own resolve. I have found numerous ways to improve the current "draft" of the Einiosaurus pictures, least among them problems with the epoccipitals, as brought to my attention (kindly) by Andrew Farke.

So, yeah. More work ahead. I think it's funny that chasmosaurine ceratopsids were generally underrepresented in the show. Everybody likes basal ceratopsians and centrosaurines. :-)

Hey, Allison -- it should be an interesting show. One thing I've noticed is that community colleges tend to produce better art than universities. That's because you're more likely to get working artists in the classes.

Zach! It's funny. Psittacosaurus seemed like a fairly dull little animal until they found the fringe...

You know your corrections on what you posted in the show would make a great post for the website. A lot of paleoartists go back and correct work as they find out things about the animals they've reconstructed and having an example of that on the site would be really cool.
