Dino School

By Mike Brownlow

This is an image from a book I've just finished illustrating for Simon and Schuster in New York. The book is called 'Dino School' and as the name suggests, it's about a school for dinosaurs. This particular story is about a T-Rex called Teddy, who can only roar extremely loudly. Think Brian Blessed in dungarees with scales and teeth. Actually, don't. It's too disturbing.


  1. I really like the dynamic graphic quality of your recent work Mike! Are those skin textures created by hand?

  2. All done in Photoshop, John. I used a texture brush that I found and then scribbled on top of that with a very small hard round brush.


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
