“Monster’ is a relative term. To a canary, a cat is a monster. We’re just used to being the cat.”
Dr. Henry Wu, Jurassic World (2015)
When Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) takes it upon himself to train velociraptors from birth, he finds himself the new alpha pf a pack. Delta fights alongside her sisters Blue, Charlie, and Echo to protect Owen from the threat of Indominus Rex.
I began working on Delta during the 2019 Callanwolde Festival in Atlanta, Georgia in January. It got lots of people interested in my process and eager for a full video. Shout out to the super coolTarafay217 on Instagram for videoing me at work during the festival — it’s impossible to film on location, at least for me.
Delta original illustration is available in my Etsy shop.
I really have enjoyed working on the Raptor Squad. It’s so satisfying when kids recognize Blue or any of the others. That’s how I know I’m doing my job right. If kids can’t tell which dinosaur I’ve drawn, I know I made a mistake! I only have Charlie left, then the Velociraptor Squad will be complete. I just have to give myself a good break between these intensive dinosaur illustration for the sake of my hands.
If you like the look of my dinosaur series, check out my Dinosaurs section on Etsy. I have a few originals and a good number of prints available.
