This conceptual illustration is a comment on the extinction of allosaurus in the Late Jurassic period.
Originally graphite on paper, the final edit was created in Photoshop and is 19 inches x 24 inches.
Amongst the dense foliage of a prehistoric forest, a lone allosaur passes through the sands of time and disturbs the flight of migrating Pteranodons.
Symbolizing its inevitable extinction, the allosaurus walks toward skeletal remains. His passing spurs two
pteranodons to take flight, a foreshadowing of the dawning Cretaceous period. I created this piece to showcase local history, the ancient landscape and iconic creatures that once roamed Colorado.
