Recent paleontological evidence seems to indicate that the Spinosaurus was pretty comfortable in around water. Turns out this *huge* predator was interested more in fish than anything. With all the boats in the news lately, I started thinking about the Salties–the giant cargo ships that move through Lake Superior. And somehow, in my brain, both of these thoughts got mixed in my head. I imagined a Spinosaurus on one of these cargo vessels, just using the big ship as a […]
Okay, by now we all know that I quite enjoy painting velociraptors. This piece was no exception! Only this time, it’s three velociraptors. I also very much enjoy mixing prehistoric animals with modern settings, which is why this raptor brawl is going down at the local gas station. If you like this piece and want to have some feathery dinosaurs hanging on your wall, you can find prints in my store!

I’ve painted a lot of dinosaurs-in-our-world pieces, so it made sense to me that certain species of dino might be incorporated into our lives like canines are.

I’m super excited about this piece, which I plan to be the start of a series of paintings depicting science fiction and fantasy in the suburbs. I know, the suburbs seem kind of… mundane.

Okay, back to the piece: velociraptors. Every time I see a flock […]
This art is definitely inspired by Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder style RPG games. I’ve always loved the art in tabletop roleplaying games, and so this piece was a lot of fun. I can just imagine her breaking in through the window and sneaking up on her prey…. You know, like a rogue assassin type.
