NEW DINOSAUR ILLUSTRATIONS

Good news! I have less than seven more chapters to go on the sequel to The Kaligen Experiment. As such, early plans for this book’s illustrations are being made. Like the previous book, these illustrations will have a feel that is similar to paleoart you find in science books. I will keep you updated on any and all new developments. Wish me luck!

ALTERNATE MOSASAURUS SCENE

Here is more unused concept art for Jurassic World regarding the Mosasaurus Lagoon. It provides yet another example of what underwater tunnels would look like if they housed prehistoric sea monsters. Only one thing scarier than looking at a giant marine reptile through a few inches of acrylic is watching said creature while it is eating.

NEW PREHISTORIC CARNIVORE

I have awesome news! It looks like a new species of theropod dinosaur was recently discovered. It is a relative of Carcharodontosaurus and is as big as Tyrannosaurus Rex. The creature is called Meraxes Gigas, named after Meraxes, the dragon of Queen Rhaenys Targaryen from A Song of Ice and Fire. I love that paleontologists have used Game of Thrones as inspiration for naming this dinosaur especially if it was as ferocious as a dragon.

RETURN OF THE CAN

In the latest trailer for the fifth season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, we got a hint that the Barbasol can that Dennis Nedry used to smuggle embryos out of Jurassic Park has returned. I wonder how this will affect the franchise as a whole. Once Nedry took the embryos out of cryostorage, they only had 36 hours before they were useless to Biosyn. With this in mind, this may be a flashback of someone salvaging the can immediately after the events of Jurassic Park in 1993. Since Mantah Corp are the antagonists of Camp Cretaceous, I wonder if they were the ones who salvaged the can and used the DNA to create some of the dinosaurs on their private island. I hope we get answers when the new season comes out.
