Pinned post

Hi Tooters, I am an artist on the internet, and I paint a lot, so you should expect that. I also paint and draw other things, like trains, aliens, robots, gods, ugly old people, people with long shoes, long cats, and landscapes.

I have created two books with Memo Kosemen & Darren Naish: All Yesterdays, about how we portray dinosaurs, and Cryptozoologicon, about mystery animals.

Does anyone out there in Fediverse-land know if there an alternative to Patreon that does per-work (rather than monthly) subscriptions?

(I wrote something for myself using Stripe, but they deprecated the API before I went live, oops!)

I just had a thought, because Bitcoin has fixed limited supply, (21m coins) and Bitcoin can be irrecoverably lost, at some point all the Bitcoin will be lost and that will be the end of Bitcoin.

My new email should be:

These are the first in a series, where I am attempting to avoid deliberately posing and placing the animals in a composition. Usually we compose animals in scenes for aesthetic reasons, and avoid confessing angles or poses. Obscuring parts (particularly heads and eyes) is nearly always avoided. What if I try to purge those rules? Will a new sort of naturalism develop?

A new – the fabulous fabrosaur Lesothosaurus checks out a burrow in Early Jurassic Lesotho.

A new - A herd of Brachiosaurus altithorax, a Gargoyleosaurus parkpinorum and some pterosaurs in Late Jurassic North America, about 145 million yeras ago.

Anatosaurus (/Anatotitan/Edmontosaurus/Trachodon, etc.) eating some grass.

Chemical Beach, a drawing, is perhaps the only dream-inspired picture I've ever done.

Another drawing, and another God: the great Saddleman stands at the beginning of the world and drips life into the wind.
