Objects in your mirror are closer than they appear... This is so cool! It looks like he's going to run right off the page! There must be something tasty over there:> This is fabulous - perfect on the black paper!

Your beautiful illustration made me want to learn more about the herrerasaurus. One of the descriptions on a site I found describe it as, appropriately, 'speedy'.... something you've shown here so wonderfully.

Thanks, IF cohorts.

Albina: Was that you I remember seeing at The Flinstone's family reunion?

Jaimie: Hee hee. According to Bishop Ussher you're close. The earth was born at 9 a.m. Oct. 9 4004 BC.

Calvin: I'm really good at drawing and watching TV at the same time, and as a woman I am a consummate multi-tasker. This was drawn while I 'watched' a documentary on wolves. :)
