This is fantastic. I imagine that they're somewhere out in the North Atlantic and the Tyrannosaurus has been riding the whale for miles. I never thought I’d get a chance to type that sentence.

Did you make this digitally or by hand? Killer job.

I laughed so hard when I saw this. You have truly captured the word "epic"

Um, this is an oil painting by an artist named Brandon Bird entitled Bad Day on the High Sea.

In defense of my past entry I would like to say I never credited myself for this painting. I would like to offer Appropriation as testament to its authenticity. Though my graduate thesis explored these issue this is a different circumstance. In my case this entry was not under the guise of a political statement or ironic gesture but ignorance of the fact that tasker is asking for only original crafted material by participants, not highlighting artists we may be currently be interested in. Sincerest apologies

Did you just cite appropriation as your defense?

As in borrowing elements of another artists work in the creation of a new work?

Did your graduate thesis explore that issue, or was it someone else's thesis that you appropriated?
