School Buses: Crunchy on the Outside, Soft on the Inside

A couple years ago I illustrated a series of educational children's books about dinosaurs; it was a great project! I got paid to draw Tyrannosaurus Rex, Spinosaurus and my long-time favorite, Stegosaurus (among others).

This Allosaurus never made it out of sketch phase. Everyone involved decided that a child running for its life was not exactly appropriate for the target age.

Too bad they shot this one down. It would have been one of the best illustrations in the book!

Your dinosaurs are the best!

As a kid, I thought one of the coolest things about dinosaurs was how they'd totally eat you if they were around today (with the exception, of course, of the veggiesauruses).

It never occurred to me that they'd also eat rear-view mirrors.
