Never got a chance to link to him - interesting stuff, made all the more so by his making them mechanical.

I quite like his drawings, unfortunate that they're so small, the do seem like something that would do well on a grand scale...

For more - and there's lots, and it's all inspiring, visit his website:

While in Drumheller we passed "The Other" museum. This is a rock/mineral and dinosaur museum that capitalizes on the signage guiding tourists to the Royal Tyrell - I have every suspicion that they waylay a substantial portion of the people on their way to their museum who think they've prematurely arrived...

Let me assure you, this is not it. I mean, interesting - "Animatronic" dinosaurs, most of which had all the veracity of that motion-activated Halloween Zombie you got at dollarama, the only exception being the T-Rex (I think?), which was well done. The others - well...not so much.  Laughable even. The exhibits, good, clearly it cost a lot to set up, and it perfectly balances the cheesy with the very-lightly-informative, and a hint of the owner's anti-climate-change or "all this is perfectly normal" agenda. The daughter and I, we had our laughs, were quickly in and out, 30 minutes is plenty of time, they probably do a great business in the summer, glad we stopped but really no need to go here twice...It would be fun for families with smaller children, but it annoys the heck out of me that people visiting might stop here and think they've taken in the Royal Tyrell and wonder what all the fuss was about...

Lol. Found their channel on YouTube while looking for prospecting porn, basically a "team" of treasure hunters that have found a "secret" island covered in gold nuggets and diamonds. You watch it and very shortly figure out that it's entirely staged - and not too cleverly at that, then go to the comments and read all comments by the rubes who are impressed. First time I've ever felt compelled to leave a comment of my own...
