Dinosaurs in New York City!!!
And I don't mean the fact we're all over 45...
I needed a few days off break, after producing those images in one hit for Roq La Rue, and taking a trip with friends is the best way to do this.
An adventure in New York City, at the American Museum of Natural History. Pictured is me with friends Lewis Morley and Maralyn Pride, of Australia. Lewis has worked on something like 16 movies, as a model maker, prop and make-up designer-his credits include Star Wars ep 2 and 3, The Matrix series, Dark City, Superman Returns, Crocodile Dundee 2, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, Razorback and many more. Maralyn is his partner and they have often worked on the same films together, and she's a renowned Dinosaur artist in Australia. The AMNH is really incredible to visit and you can't do all of it in just a few hours which is what we wound up having. This was compounded by the fact that it was SWARMING with kids/families as the schools are off. But the collection of prehistoric skeletons and, original Charles Knight paintings is worth all that!
Artists-I often have sketched skeletons and items in museums. It's the best way to learn about something as you never know when you'll need that memory for reference.
