Monster Otters, Motörhead Crocs, and Zuul: The Best Paleo Art of 2017 #ArtTuesday

via MOTHERBOARD

Some people think that paleontology holds nothing but old news. As a paleo artist who draws dinosaurs and other ancient creatures for a living, I know that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Every year, new discoveries and research shake up old assumptions about life that existed on Earth long before us, and 2017 was no exception. The results, from the colour of dinosaurian feathers to soft tissue discoveries, are incredible. At the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, where I’m based, I use art to communicate the science of paleontology to captivate the minds of as many people as I can.

I’m happy to say that art is increasingly being considered essential for good science outreach, and here, I’d like to highlight some of the best art that graced new studies published this year.
