International Artist Article on Tyrannosaurs

International Artist Magazine has a big feature on my recent Tyrannosaur illustrations for Scientific American in their upcoming issue #104 (August / September). Some of the sketches are reproduced full size, so you can really see them.

It's a good supplement to the tutorial video "Tyrannosaurs: Behind the Art," about which Iain McCaig (concept artist for Guardians of the Galaxy and Harry Potter) said, "It's a humbling experience to watch any true Master perform. In James Gurney's case, he is so beguiling and unpretentious that it is nothing short of magic. One moment, a blank page, the next--presto! A living, breathing, feathered Tyrannosaur!”

Well, if you count dozens of hours as "a moment" sure... :D
