Dinosaurs Are Gnarly!

Tue, 2017-05-09 02:09
Live fast, die ugly! Some predatory dinosaurs led rough and dangerous lives, often leaving them scarred and in ill health. In fact, many dinosaur skeletons reveal old battle scars and wounds sustained in life, as well as symptoms of disease.

Alice the pint-sized Nanuqsaurus takes a turn into a forgotten garden of ancient ferns, gingkoes, conifers, and cycad holdovers from a younger, wetter Earth along the banks of ancestral Prince Creek and Colville River - no doubt, feeling very small indeed among the towering cypress and dawn redwood trees.

Cheeky Anurognathus TeeSpring Shirt

Tue, 2015-06-09 22:17
A few months ago, our little kitty, Kutuzov, fell ill and had to be put on kidney dialysis - to no avail. His passing has left a huge hole in our hearts, not to mention a dent in our wallet. The total vet costs wiped out our meager savings, and in the middle of all this, we are finding ourselves having to move. I am offering this anurognathus design, colored in the coat pattern and colors of our late kitty, as a way to offset the costs of his final vet bill.

#Elegrams Help Save Elephants

Mon, 2014-11-10 23:20
The Nature Conservancy (nature-africa.tumblr.com/post/… is trying to get "elegrams" to help save elephants!

Donors have pledged $20,000 to The Nature Conservancy for programs associated with anti-poaching efforts and elephant sanctuaries in Africa if we all pitch in and create 20,000 "elegrams" in the coming weeks. To participate, create a piece of elephant art (it can be anything from 3-D art to food sculptures - but no photographs of real elephants) and upload it to the Nature Conservancy's website listed above, or to Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags "#elegram" and "#SaveElephants"

Let's help save some elephants, fellow Deviants!
