With apologies, an unfinished drawing.....this was in preparation as an entry for Draw a Dino day, but the combined pressures of earning a crust and moving home meant it was to remain unfinished by the due date and was set aside - like too much else in my life. But today, just a few minutes ago, I cast an eye over Andrea Cau's Theropoda blog and lo! there stood MY Anchiornis, well almost......maybe this time it will be finished....but first I have just a few things to do......
James (Jim) Robins, illustrator. Graduated Brighton College of Art 1971, has worked in most areas of publishing in a broad range of subject areas and using many and varied techniques, for more of which go to his website at www.jr-illustration.co.uk.
This blog is intended as an archive and showcase of my natural history and palaeontological work. Samples here cover nigh on forty years, and therefore reflect the ongoing theories of tetrapod evolution over that time, so there will be no apologies for positions of necks, tails and hands, possession of feathers - or not - which may not concur with current ideas. Due to copyright limitations there are many omissions, old drawings often pop up - usually uncredited - in clipart and museum archives. Others, after just a single airing have disappeared into the back of a filing cabinet, never to see the light of day again. Everything shown here is under my copyright, please treat this with respect.
