I’M FUCKING SCREAMING OMGGGGGG THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE 90S TO ROMANTICIZED BY NON-90S KIDS FUCK

I feel like a legend.

Oh look.

I’m old.

Fucking-A.

WHEN PEOPLE WERE HAPPY WITH THEMSELVES? Oh my god. We were so miserable, are you kidding? WHY DO YOU THINK WE WORE BLACK NAIL POLISH AND LISTENED TO THE CURE AND SMOKED CONSTANTLY AND SMOKED A TON OF POT AND BASHED AGAINST EACH OTHER IN MOSH PITS??? WE WERE DEPRESSED.

I mean, okay, it was fantastic. But also we were very depressed.

"I miss dinosaurs."

"Evolution, we’ve talked about this."

"But I miss them.”

"You turned them into birds, remember? It was the best you could do, given the circumstances.”

"It’s not the same."

"I know. I’m sorry."

"Can I at least make these cassowaries 50 feet tall?"

"Come on, you know that size didn’t work out so well before."

"Six feet, then? And over 100 pounds?"

"Yeah, that sounds better."

"And can I put weird prehistoric crests on their heads?"

"I don’t see why not."

"And can they slash people’s throats with their dagger claws?”

"Sure, pal, if that would make you feel better."

"I think it would. Thanks for understanding."

"You got it, evolution. Anytime."

Amazingly Vivid Dino Illustrations Reveal a Brutal Prehistoric World

Over its lifetime, Earth has hosted countless species. But some of those species, like the dinosaurs, have managed to claw their way into a special place in our imaginations. Now, a new book illustrates the dinosaurs — and many of the beasts of millennia ago — in beautiful, spectacular and vicious style.

In one illustration, tiny Utahraptors tear at the flesh of a much larger creature. Another shows a rather unlikely but fanciful encounter between giant megalodon and funny-looking platybelodon. A more serene image depicts a well-camouflaged little dinosaur sleeping beneath a tree in a lush, green forest.

The Paleoart of Julius Csotonyi, available on May 20, is a collection of artwork by Julius Csotonyi, an award-winning illustrator whose work lives in museums and in science papers. Csotonyi, who holds a PhD in microbiology, works frequently with paleontologists who need help bringing their fossil finds to life. Sometimes, though, he draws whatever comes to mind. According to Csotonyi’s parents, his first illustration, at age 3, was of a dinosaur. “It appears to have been intended to be a rooster,” Csotonyi says in the book.

Really beautiful palaeoart here! I’ll be taking a class later this year in palaeoart. I’ve been an artist all my life, and drawing dinosaurs since I was a kid, but a serious course will be very, very fun.

'Snake attacks baby dinosaurs', a peek at James Gurney's process and finished painting.

Read about the making of this beautiful illustration at James Gurney’s always interesting blog. And even if Mr. Gourney isn’t on Tumblr, I recommend everyone to bookmark or RSS his blog and read it often, it’s easily one of my favorites blogs about both art and paleoart.
