New Photography

Happy 2014! I'm bringing in the new year by sharing some of my favorite recent bird photographs from my holiday trip to the Tallahassee area of Florida (and a few closer to home). Check out the (currently) top two rows of my Photography gallery for the new additions.

For anyone curious, the relative lack of recent additions to the paleoart or bird artwork galleries is due to my current involvement on a very large museum project. The project will be under wraps for the next few months, so please stay tuned!


Holiday bird artwork!

To celebrate the holiday season, I've created a bird-themed holiday card appropriate for Christmas or anything else featuring original artwork and silly poetry within. Take a look! It features the belted kingfisher, eastern kingbird, and golden-crowned kinglet, as well as a silly little bird poem. The design is also for sale in my Zazzle store.

Happy holidays!




Another dromaeosaur, another illustration: meet Acheroraptor, the newly-described Hell Creek dromaeosaur! This velociraptorine has been previously known only from a handful of teeth, but now has a legitimate dentary and maxilla to its name.

Full description is published in November 2013 Naturwissenschaften.
