Ok, so we all know I’m a massive fan of the Jurassic Park movies… So, for a change to more cartoon dinosaurs, I thought I’d do a cartoon of the insect in amber that started the whole story. So what’s the deal with the insect in amber? Easy peasy for those who have seen the […]
Really Nick, more dinosaurs?! I recently completed a series of 30 (yes, 30!) dinosaur cartoons as part of Jurassic June, an online celebration of all things dinosaur and what better excuse to draw a series of dinosaur cartoons? A little bit of a ‘mammoth’ task, you might say… a new dinosaur every day?! I wanted […]

Parasaurolophus was such a distinctive creature I just had(rosaur) to draw it […]

With his towering neck and mighty shoulders, here’s the next entry for my dinosaur series – a cartoon Brachiosaurus! A little bit about the Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus was a sauropod from the late Jurassic period (155-140 million years ago) and first discovered in 1903. His name means ‘arm reptile’ due to the oversized front legs, probably […]
I don’t know about you, but I love drawing cartoon dinosaurs (and anything else prehistoric for that matter!) Whenever I possibly can I’ll break out the sketchbook and create some monstrous beastie from the Mesozoic period! If you’d like to know more about a particular dinosaur, simply click on the picture.
