Last fall, on my big US round trip that ended with the SVP meeting, I spent a few days in New York, working on photogrammetrizing oviraptors (two links) at the AMNH. One evening I spent with the incomparable Gary Vecchiarelli and equally incomparable Christopher DiPiazza, drinking beer, talking dinosaurs, shooting the shit – a fun evening I hope to repeat as soon as possible. Chris and Gary are Jersey boy, and they love dinosaurs – what surprise that there is a matching blog: Jersey Boys hunt Dinosaurs.
Chris surprised me with a present. I’d previously given him some advice on a Plateosaurus drawing, and well – see for yourself:
Very many thanks again, Chris, for a wonderful watercolor of my favorite dinosaur (I’ll email you the full-res scan). Love the pose, and the proportions are perfect!
