I'd like you to meet Mr. Royal Guard, another recent project of mine. But who's that handsome fellow with the toothy grin behind him? It's a pterosaur! Gnathosaurus subulatus to be exact. Why? Because it amuses the heck out of me of course.


  1. Cute - are those wee little beads on his jacket?
    p.s., I am shocked that you haven't done a post about the glow-in-the-dark dinosaur quarter!

  2. Well, it's on the To-Post list, but that's a pretty long list. :P

    It's so freaking cool though! Can't wait to see the others.

  3. Oh! And yes, beads. :P


Thanks for commenting! It gives me the warm fuzzies. :)
