Ceratopsian Identification Guide by Julius Csotonyi and Steve White
Oh my god my six-year-old self would be nerding out so hard looking at this.
I love the variety and sheer awesomeness of ceratopsians.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Julius Csotonyi for a short profile about a year ago, and: oh my fucking god he is the most awesome.
If you’ve been to a museum with an amazing dinosaur exhibit in North America, like the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the Royal Tyrell, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and many others, chances are pretty good that he worked on some of the murals behind the exhibits.
He also illustrated these:
Yes, in Canada we create glow-in-the-dark dinosaur coins. Yeah, we’re awesome.
Also, if that wasn’t impressive enough, he has a PhD in microbiology. Yep. And he draws dinosaurs for a living.
But seriously, Julius is amazing and I absolutely recommend buying his amazing book, which the above illustration is from. His art is spectacular and he did a ton of amazing illustrations for it. To put this in perspective, the other book Steve White put together was Dinosaur Art: The World’s Greatest Dinosaur Art (also pretty amazing), but he followed it up with a book entirely dedicated to Julius’s work and methodology (which is fascinating).
In short: fuck yeah, dinosaurs.
