Since Pteroformer went live at the end of 2014, I've added several new pieces to my Redbubble page which provide an important mid-month injection of funds. But I wanted to take things a step further by combining my illustrating with my writing, so this June I published a 118-page compilation of palaeoart, A Disarray Of Palaeoart, which is available through the print-on-demand service, Lulu. (Not my first book, but it is my first for palaeoart.)
|Illustrations from A Disarray Of Palaeoart: A fish collides with a pliosaur; Velociraptor gets booted down a hill; an ichthyosaur gives birth to a plesiosaur (okay, that didn't ever happen); a sauropod goes Monty Python; a pterosaur doing nothing.)|

The text-to-image ratio is about 50:50, as I wanted to offer value for money. There's a degree of tech speak – probably not enough for some, and maybe too much for others. And I'm not an academic, so there may be one or two errors – even the odd howler!
