Perhaps he means that they look like Sperm Whales. A sperm whale
carcass washed up off of Wellington recently and the locals promptly
dubbed it "Mr. Blobby" because of it's amorphous, rather stringy shape
(local scientist think it's a P. catodon, but are not sure, hence the
"Blobby" handle). As you can see, I'm rather a P. catodon enthusiast.
Or perhaps he just means blobs. There are good blobs, I guess, but I
wouldn't want my illustrations referred to in this way. I find
it . . . curious . . . that this criticism was posted on a list that you
are known to subscribe to.
I for one do not believe that your animals look like blobs. To attest
to this, I'd like to know how to get your new 1998 calendar which, I
understand, has many non-blobby dinosaurs that you have not illustrated
previously, like everyone's favorite early tyrannosaur Alioramus.
