Interestingly, shortly after I posted that interview with Michael Skrepnick
(thanks again, Mr. Skrepnick!), a certain nameless somebody sent me an
e-mail to clarify and differentiate between the terms "paleolife art" and
"paleoart." As it stands, the latter term literally translates as "ancient
art," whereas the former translates as "ancient life art" (more obviously).
My misuse of the word "paleoart" came from the misunderstanding that the
word "paleontology" was composed of two words. It is in fact composed of
three: "paleo" (=ancient), "onto" (=organism), and "ology" (=the study of).
As such, although use of either of the terms is completely up to the
individual, "paleolife art" is more sound.<<
Paleolife art doesn't work either because it means that the Ancient Life did
the art. For me, who does the art, I don't really give a *&^% what you call
it, just let me do it. I'll let you guys argue about the right name, then
I'll use it :)
My biggest grip is it not being done right!
M. Skrepnick, D. Varner do it right. And boy do they do it right!!! Can't
wait to get Dan's book (Dan, will it be out soon?).
