Thank You

thanks dino

In the states, today is Thanksgiving. It's a time of year when the paleo corner of social media lights up with references to the dinosaurian lineage of Meleagris gallopavo. My contribution is this minimalist illustration of a vaguely deinonychosaurian theropod, inspired by a female Wild Turkey. I want to take a moment to thank the readers of Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs, the commenters, the sharers of links, and those of you who have kindly shared scans of old dinosaur books with us.

I would also like to personally thank Marc Vincent, Asher Elbein, and Niroot Puttapipat for their writings here; when I began school again I desperately wanted to keep LITC going, and because of the terrific writing of my co-bloggers, it is doing better than ever - perhaps not as frequently updated as before, but I am proud of the writing we share here, and I look forward to the day when I can pitch in at my pre-MFA studies level.

At any rate. Thank you.

  1. Well, I for one can say it's a pleasure to read. Long live LITTOC!

  2. Thanks David! I'd write more often, but it's hell on my liver.

  3. Yeah, thanks from me, too (and to Marc, Niroot, and Asher).

    We don't have Thanksgiving here in Australia, and I figured that the turkeys have had a pretty rough time of it, so I ate some (stinkin' mammal) kangaroo.

  4. It's always a pleasure reading this blog, not only new posts but also digging through the archive.

    When I did a post on my blog ("When monsters ruled the earth" — an image gallery of 19th century Paeleo Art http://vorvorvorgestern.de/als-monster-die-erde-beherrschten/) it was definitely inspired by LITC.

    So, – thank's for all the work you're sharing with us.

  5. I know this is a day late, but I want to thank David, Niroot, and Marc for welcoming me into the family. And of course, the readers for putting up with my interest in giant red dinosaurs. Cheers, everybody!

  6. A belated thank you to the LITC crew for not only giving me my nostalgia fix on a regular basis, but also for exposing me to old dino books I might not have heard of otherwise.

    P.S. If you ever get a chance to, I recommend reviewing Aliki's dino books (I especially like "Dinosaurs Are Different"). The art is very easy on the eyes.

    2. Don't know how I missed that 1 when looking through the older posts. In any case, we could always use more Aliki art.
