Recently, I participated in a twitter event called #30daysofdinosaurs. #30daysofdinosaurs was was the brilliant idea of incredible artist, Shannon John Shea, as an art event. For the month of June, now known as #JurassicJune, participating artists could tweet a new dinosaur drawing every day.
At first I thought, Oh, that's cool. I've got a bunch of dino art sitting on my hard drive, I'll post a few. Maybe some people will like them. A few days in, I really got into the spirit and started doing new sketches every day.
I tried to stick to relatively unknown dinos for my pencil sketches. After all, everybody's seen a million T.rex drawings, but there's not quite so many Montanoceratops or Amargasaurus out there.
In addition the the sketches, I also debuted a few new full color illustrations that I was happy to share.
Before we get to it, I'd like to give a big thank you to Shannon for sharing this idea with the world. Not only did I get to draw a bunch of dinosaurs, but every day I got to see the awesome work of many very talented artists whose work I hope to follow for years to come.
So here it is, in all its prehistoric glory, my entire #30daysofdinosaurs collection.
One more time, a big thanks to @JurassicJune1 and to Shannon John Shea! What an awesome month it was. Can't wait to do it again next year!
