Episode 19 – Love within the Time of Chasmosaurs

Greetings, every one! In the present day’s episode options fairly a distinction: the naïve, infantile creatures illustrated by Hillary Stebbing in her 1946 kids’s guide Extinct Animals, contrasted in opposition to the gnarly, outlandish fashionable work of Zubin Erik Dutta, a real up-and-comer within the palaeoart world. How do horror and pin-ups affect dinosaur artwork? Does each ceratopsian scrap will get its personal genus identify? What on earth is a Jakapil? And the way did we find yourself with a dinosaur guide with no T. rex in? All this and extra in in the present day’s great episode.

Within the Information

  • Meet Jakapil, the brand new basal, bipedal thyreophoran (or is it?) from South America. Paper by Riguetti et al.
  • Simply why did disparate lineages of huge theropods, to not point out pseudosuchians, evolve that funny-shaped eye socket? Paper by Stephan Lautenschlager.
  • Not one other new ceratopsian! Oh sure, it’s Bisticeratops, a chasmosaurine from Late Cretaceous New Mexico. Paper by Dalman et al. Ah, Bisti-o.

Classic Dinosaur Artwork

We take a gander at Extinct Animals, a kids’s guide illustrated by Hilary Stebbing and revealed in 1946. So, that’s positively not the Invicta Stegosaurus toy on the quilt, irrespective of how a lot Marc desires it to be. A really charming guide with a number of the sweetest (non-cloying) renditions of prehistoric animals you’ve ever seen. Do try Niels’ overview from again in 2020, in case you haven’t already.


Marc interviews artist Zubin Erik Dutta about his influences – in palaeoart, fantasy artwork, horror artwork and, er, pinups – gnarliness, ultraviolence, luxuriant manes, and rather more moreover. It’s true, there are lots of tyrannosaurs – however then, they’re the perfect dinosaurs. Do try his ArtStation and DeviantArt pages, and new Redbubble store. Merch!
