Dinosaurs Like Fashion, Too!

After the meticulous realism I strived for during the LARA painting course, I thought it would be refreshing to focus my attention on some more whimsical and imaginative artworks. I’ve been working on a few different projects that I plan to turn into postcards and greetings cards, the first set of which is now ready to show you.

Those of you who know me might be aware that I have a soft spot for dinosaurs and other things prehistoric. But, if dinosaurs could walk the Earth today, don’t you think they’d want to preserve their modesty with a fashionable outfit that reflected their dazzling personality? Of course they would! Based on entirely unscientific social-media research, here are four fabulous dinosaurs just waiting to get dressed up. There’s a dapper Iguanodon with a pocket watch, a flapper Velociraptor with a flair for feathers, a casual Triceratops at home in a onesie, and a Brontosaurus who can’t wait to get her skates on. Suggestions for further species and outfits welcome!

About Draw Something, Laura!

Draw Something, Laura! is the smorgasbord of artistic and illustrative creations dreamt up by Laura, an artist and children’s book editor based in London, UK. Laura draws her inspiration from the places and people who surround her, and from the peculiar night-dreams and daydreams that wiggle their way into her mind. Often, these involve prehistoric animals, things in boxes, and her seemingly immortal goldfish, Kurt.

    From my (admittedly limited) knowledge of dinosaurs and fashion, I think these are spot on! That’s exactly how I think velociraptors would dress. I love these!
