Pterrible Courier

Pterrible Courier. Sepia ink, sepia powder, white Conté and gouache on recycled paper, 112 x 178mm.

Pterosaurs make terrible couriers. Especially of food parcels.

This is the context in which this drawing originated. I'm hard-pressed to refrain from making another self-deprecatory remark about its silliness, but I had been persuaded to share this on the grounds that pterosaurs figure so rarely among my work (thereby passing the buck altogether). I also realised rather too late how much this resembles the arm-munching T. rex in action and posture. I hope you won't upbraid.



  1. "This is the context in which this drawing originated."

    What kind of dessert was it?

  2. What references were used for this? Scott Hartman's recent skeletal, surely?

    1. Yes, indeed; and timely it was, too. Pterosaur skeletals are very thin on the ground. I wish Scott would do more. I'm looking forward to Mark Witton's book.
