Carnotaurus MaquetteMeet Cid the Carnotaurus.   This is the 2nd piece I’m putting in my Summer Graduation Show at RMCAD.  My sculptures are illustrations of scientific facts, theories, and debates pertaining to dinosaurs or other extinct creatures.  For Cid, I chose the debate on whether or not a theropod could lay down(since previously it was thought they slept standing).  So, here is Cid sunbathing on some rocks!

deinonychus Maquette

RMCAD Grad Show 1st Piece

For my summer 2010 Graduation Show at Rocky Mountain College of Art+Design, I’m focusing on theropod carnivores from the cretaceous period.  For my first piece out of three, I chose to sculpt deinonychus, the misnamed dinosaur that everyone refers to as velociraptors because of the movie “Jurassic Park.”  I know, my childhood was crushed too, like when I found out about Santa Claus.  So to appease my inner child, I decided to do the typical depiction on dinosaurs – AN EPIC BATTLE OF SURVIVAL!! Or….. they could just be playing.   Just like when we were kids with our toy dinosaurs.  Don’t deny it.
