Palaeoartworks: a palaeoart gallery at Lyme Regis, April 7th - May 4th

Mark Witton: “So, what can you expect from the gallery? Hopefully, there’s a wide enough range of restorations to keep most tastes happy: dinosaurs, pterosaurs, Crocodyliformes, invertebrates, marine reptiles, even some fish. These are organised into are three collections. The first is dedicated to palaeoart of the Wealden Supergroup, a sequence of Lower Cretaceous sediments found throughout south-east England with an intensely studied palaeobiota and palaeoenvironment. Regular readers will know that I’ve been publishing a lot of Wealden artwork recently - enough, it seems, to fill the wall of a gallery - and my favourites are now on display." More info

State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens. 
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

It’s a start!
With this, I’m ready to draw the skeletons of mammals. Especially that beaked whale in the foyer.

This is Jupiter, and at least one of the Galilean moons.

The moooon.

Mars, shot via binoculars and an iPhone.

Made in 2009 for a now-defunct art gallery, @alaskanime provided the colors, I did the design/pencils/inks.

If memory serves, the theme was something along the lines of “When you were 13…[come up with something that would have appealed to you in an image].” Some day, I’ll get back to this for real. (I am working on it as time permits; just background stuff.)

Some attempts to capture the moon with an iPhone 5s and a pair of binoculars on a tripod.

Mars didn’t come out at all, but was a pretty visible dot—almost a disk.
