Vegisaurus, Lex!

Date: c. mid 1996.
Medium: Pencil on paper.

Based on the scene in Jurassic Park, this drawing takes a more sinister turn. As Tim tells his sister Lex that the Brachiosaur is a "vegisaurus," the animal eats Dr. Grant, whose leg can be seen dangling from its mouth. How cute it was when the dinosaur simply sneezed on Lex. How much darker it would have been if the animal had eaten one of them!

Ian Malcolm is at the bottom, snidely remarking, "See? I warned them! But Nooo!" This was before I met the real-life Ian Malcolm. Nowadays I have to be more careful in differentiating him from the character of the same name in Jurassic Park.
