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.

THERIZINOSAUR 6 - FINAL CUT
Here is the finished piece of lino.
Next I'll use it to make a print. Results of which wont appear for a few days when the ink has properly dried. Wet ink on my scanner is not a good idea and I have no camera at present.

THERIZINOSAUR 4 - NEXT FEW CUTS
It's a jungle out there.
This lino is proving quite soft to cut which is good. The surface seems too shiny to me to hold the ink that I need to apply later. We shall see...

THERIZINOSAUR 2 - ADDING THE DRAWING
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...
Note that the writing is deliberately mirrored. This will appear the correct way round once printed- I hope-
