day 51

  I've ran out of room on the main page! I'm hoping there's a way to extend the amount of posts beyond 50, otherwise you'll have to go to older posts to view. If anyone out there knows how to extend the amount, let me know!

day 50

Well I'm now officially half way done with my hundred days of dinosaurs!
I'm finding I'm now back into a more stream of conscious mindset than a while back. Before I took a few weeks off I was thinking of the whole of the project with an overall arc, but those thoughts have faded a bit as I was away form the project. It's probably something I should put a little attention on, but it's actually kind of satisfying letting the story inform me as to the next events as I get to them. I'll try to figure something out as I go!

day 48

Thanks for the nice comments for those who've posted. I appreciate the encouragement!

...And for anyone out there looking for a little extra Christmas swag, I've just put up a children's book on the blog!

day 46
I went to the dinosaur exhibit at the LA museum of Natural History yesterday which was very cool. Ironically, I'd already posted yesterday's post, (which was of Gus narrowly avoiding the spikes of a Stegosaurus) when I learned that stegosaurus wasn't even in the same era as triceritops or 80 million years! Perhaps had I not already posted, I may have adapted the steggie to another dinosaur, but since I had, I'm chalking it up to artistic license!

Here's a new post...( finally) hopefully I can get back into a routine over the Thanksgiving weekend and get rolling again!

day 39

I'm slogging through getting this post up! I've been away from it for a couple of weeks and seem to have pretty much lost my momentum...hope it doesn't take too long to get it back.

day 38

Here ends another micro-chapter in Gus' life...and just in time too, as I'll be away for a week or so. I'll start up again as soon as I get back.

day 37

My internet went down last night, so I couldn't post yesterday. Hopefully I can post another today, as I'll be away for a week or so.

day 35

I'm running a bit behind...almost the end of the day before I got a drawing up!

day 34

Thank you to everyone who has left the nice comments. I really appreciate your compliments and support!
I've now acquired quite a collection of dinosaur figures/toys...I'm pretty sure my wife thinks I've reverted back to desk is littered with critters now! I can't believe how cool dinosaur toys are these day...when I was a kid these kinds of things were in a whole different league than what they've evolved into!

day 31
I've made it a month into the project!
On this post I had the misfortune of doing a sketch of the T-Rex skidding around and my computer crashed before I saved. Argh! I hope this sketch is as strong as the first, but I guess I'll never know.

day 30
I'm nearly a third of the way into the project now. I noticed the blog shows fifty entries at a time, without having to go back to earlier posts. I'm not yet sure if that break will affect the rhythm of the story or not... ( but will most likely let the content drive whatever I decide to do...) But it's something I'm finding myself thinking about a bit now. I'm also kind of feeling my way through a general overall idea as to what'll happen in a general way. It's pretty interesting, just as a process, to see how the this thing is kind of taking a life of it's own.

Just got in from san Fran's getting late, but at least I scratched this one out before midnight!

day 24

As I'm working straight ahead on my hundred days of dinosaurs, I'm starting to form a thought of how it's going to work as a whole piece. I'm finding I have a general concept emerging, but working in this fashion, it's difficult at this point to see how an overall story arc is going to work. It may be too short for a hundred days, may go over a hundred days( although I'm wanting to commit to these constraints, since that was my initial concept.) Kinda flying without a net, but I'm having a good time with the project anyway!

day 22
I started drawing the confrontation between these two dinosaurs last night and had considered using a more obscure horned dinosaur, but opted for the classic triceritops/T-Rex showdown.

day 21

egg eater.

day 20
It's interesting how this project is developing in my's pretty apparent that the T-Rex is immerging as the dominant villain of the piece...not surprising 'cause he's the coolest ever!
...of course there are other interesting meat-eating antagonists that could be cool, but it's hard to beat the king!
...besides... they're fun to draw.
(...and nobody'd be afraid of an herbivore!)

day 19
I just got back from San Francisco again and wanted to get a drawing up before the end of the day! I'm ahead in my mind a few days as far as what's going to happen... now I just have to catch up with the drawing end!

Day 18
Gus' dining is distracted...

Thursday, September 15, 2011

day 17
It's nearing the end of the day and I'm just getting around to posting. It's nice to have a couple sketches ahead when posting these, but I'm a little behind the eight ball now, with no spare sketches!

I've reached the end of Gus' first day. Thank you everyone for the positive support on this project so far!

Gus looks back from a safe distance.

Day 12.
Gus heads for the fronds! I just got back from San Francisco where I'm teaching a storyboard class at the Academy of Art and I doubt I'll get around to doing another drawing today, but fortunately I'm a day ahead of schedule and have a spare!

day 11.

Gus successfully extricates himself!

Thursday, September 8, 2011

I'm at day 10 of my hundred days of dinosaurs! Whew! Ten percent done!
...picking up on Gus struggling to free himself from the jaws of the crocodile mother who scooped him up with her other hatchlings...

Day 8.
I spent the last couple of days up in San Francisco so have been neglecting Gus as he's been traveling around in a croc bus with a bunch of her babies. Fortunately for him, mother croc hasn't figured out he's there!...yet...

Friday, September 2, 2011

Here's day number 7.( And from the looks of it I'm wondering if there'll be and eighth day!) If Gus is lucky, he'll return on monday, as I'm out for the weekend.
Good luck with that croc, Gus!

Thursday, September 1, 2011

well, I've made it to day 6 of my hundred days of dinosaurs project. I 'm glad I didn't pre-emp the project by committing to a post EVERY day, but I'll do the best I can to keep it going. I wish the post could be modified so that you could scroll down to advance the story, rather than up, but evidently that's not in the cards.
I've been thinking a bit about Gus and am not really sure what kind of dinosaur he is; probably a velociraptor, but I'm open to other ideas from any dinosaur afficianados out there! ....maybe he'll grow into an Allosaurus, who knows?

I've made it to day number four! So far so good!

Monday, August 29, 2011

I think I've decided to officially start my hundred days of dinosaurs with Gus' first appearance, so that'll make this day 3!

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Now that I've sketched a couple of dinosaurs, I've discovered a bit of a different direction for my hundred days of dinosaurs project. I'm going to follow this little guy named Gus through his adventures in the Jurassic period.
I have no idea where it's going to go, so it'll be a surprise to me too!...hopefully a cohesive one...fingers crossed.
