Prehistoric Times

What do you get when you cross a guinea pig with a rhinoceros?


The new Winter issue of Prehistoric Times magazine has two new features that I wrote: “How I Painted Titanoboa” and “The Making of a Giant Rodent.”






Each article has a behind-the-scenes look on how I reconstructed an extinct animal. In each case, all I had to start with was one or two bones. The rest took a lot of educated guesswork—and you guessed it....maquettes!

Whoa! So let me get this straight... you're doing your own interpretations of what these animals looked like from a couple of bones? Wow! How cool is that? Are you directly consulting with other archeologists/documentation or is this all out of your head? Either way it's fantastic work James:) Thanks again for sharing.
