walking with dinosaurs and alex and a few sphinxes

Last year Garen Ewing did the poster, showing one of Crystal Palace's big dinosaur's on the communication tower, so I thought I'd better get over there and see the dinosaurs to make this year's poster, and Alex gave me a great tour.
So far I've only drawn a few dinosaurs on the train ride back:

More monsters: Getting excited about the publication of Drew Weing's Set to Sea comic. That guy (drewweing) is one of the best draughtsmen out there.
