A4 Collage in green paper.
This trilobite was found in the Burgess Shale and illustrated and detailed in Stephen Jay Gould's 'It's a Wonderful Life'
I've also used text from Stephen Jay Gould's book in this work. I enjoyed the construction of this piece and wanted to make a big deal of the intricacies of the creature. I found that cutting and sticking tiny bits of paper did this well. The tentacles are a photocopied tin can.
A collage homage to trilobites.
Spent the rest of the day with bits of green trilobite stuck to my fingers. Not the look of chic sophistication women crave.

OK here's the drawing- in black felt pen - around which I will cut with a special lino cutting tool.
My Therizinosaur is more of a giant plucked chickenosaur. I've played on this a little and added cockerel like appendages.
Run chicken run...
