Yuko took a trip to the Museum of Natural History in DC while we were in town for SPX, and these are some of the dinos she drew. My favorite is the allosaurus skull in the upper right corner. So sleek, it just needs a racing stripe. 

Just a reminder, we're out of town so any orders made for the next 1.5 weeks will be shipped when we return to NYC! We're in DC for my best friend's wedding and it is getting c-c-c-crazy in here! We're out, catch you Tuesday!

Awesome Dinosaurs! That's my favorite museum. I live so close to DC so I've been there way too many times lol.

You should watch the series

You should watch the series premier of Terra Nova this coming Monday at 8. From what I can tell it about humans colonizing the past and living alongside dinosaurs. Everything my inner child ever wanted :D

I watched the trailer for that, they better explain why there are grasses in the Triassic/Jurassic/Cretaceous, because there weren't actually grasses then!

Lol, forgot about that

Lol, forgot about that little fun-fact. Anyway, let's just assume that one of the previous pilgrimages brought grass seeds with them.

Gesture drawings of skeletons forever and I'd still visit this site weekly. At least.

That's the sort of thing I like to see when I boot up the ol' computer.

I love spending days in the Smithsonian, sketching...
My only question is, how did Yuko manage to get any sketching done in the dinosaur hall? The oceans exhibit sure, but it's always so packed near the dinosaurs! X) You're getting swallowed in a wave of stampeding children all the time.

Whoa.. just whoa

these are amazing.. they look 10 times better than the real thing. It reminds me of that Dinozaurs show except not retarded and instead, completely awesome.

You inspire me to draw

Jurassic Park

Somewhat relevant, they were showing Jurassic Park in the cinemas this week in Ireland :D It was quite awesome to watch it on a cinema screen again!

Giant Ground Sloth!

Comment by Eleanor (not verified) Sun, 09/25/2011 - 17:04

The Giant Ground Sloth is my power animal! Any time I was on the Mall I had to stop in and see that guy. There's a nice spot off to the left that's perfect for sketching the one that's standing up. One of these days I'd like to take a bigger sketchpad and do it justice.

Did you guys hang out with Aaron Diaz again? I heard he likes dinosaurs.

I cant even believe it

In my art class we're just starting gesture drawings. This are so unbelievably amazing it hurts me D:

many of those aren't dinosaurs

Comment by Derek (not verified) Sun, 10/02/2011 - 13:08

At the risk of sounding like a pedantic jerk, it looks to me that fewer than half of the sketches are of actual dinosaurs. The first four certainly appear to be, then she has a Dimetrodon which is a mammal-like reptile from the Permian. After that, it appears to be a proto-horse...maybe Miohippus (mammal), a whale (mammal), a ground sloth (mammal), and a pterosaur (non-dinosaurian reptile).

That said, really beautiful sketches!

I was gonna say the same thing--I cannot hide the nerd within.
