In the best tradition of my dear friend Pete Buchholz, I hereby
announce that you can all now view some of my very own, hand
crafted artwork at Mike Keesey's fantastic DINOSAURICON www
site ( http://www.ql.umbc.edu/~tkeese1/dinosaur ).
I have only had the time to send six pictures to Mike, but pester me
and I might send more. Mike has inadvertently mislabelled some of the
pictures - the blotchy-patterned _Segnosaurus galbinensis_ is in fact
a representation of _Alxasaurus_, and the two caprimulgiform birds
flying over the head of _Aegotheles_ are not member of the same
genus, but different creatures entirely. Also, the picture of the two
therizinosaurs is not meant to depict two different _types_ of
therizinosaur, but rather two different artistic conceptions of what
therizinosaurs may have looked like. The one on the left is a
segnosaur composite as illustrated (and published) by Greg Paul, the
one on the right is Ely Kish's unlikely-looking version of a
_Therizinosaurus_. A third rendition - based on John Sibbick's best
guess at _Erlikosaurus_ - was in the original but has been taken out
for reasons of space.
The 'Archosaur Diversity' picture was formerly available as a T-shirt
design. The negative profit made production of said garments an
Thanks and congratulations are due to Mike, who had done a superb job
in putting up a lot of new interesting stuff, and had succeeded in
providing a highly attractive site. If this were in a review in a
magazine, I'd give Mike's site 4 stars out of 5.
