Mike Fredericks, the editor of the wonderful “Prehistoric Times” magazine has sent Everything Dinosaur a picture of the front cover artwork for the next edition (spring 2022). The illustration, depicting some of the feathered members of the Dinosauria associated with northern China in the Early Cretaceous was created by renowned British palaeoartist John Sibbick.
“Prehistoric Times” Issue 141
The magazine is sent out 4 times a year and John Sibbick has produced several front cover artworks for “Prehistoric Times”. His latest contribution highlights the diversity of the feathered dinosaurs associated with the Yixian and Jiufotang Formations of north-eastern China that existed between approximately 130-120 million years ago (Hauterivian through to the early Aptian faunal stage of the Cretaceous).
Tracy Lee Ford continues the feathery theme by providing another section of his highly informative series on how to draw integumentary coverings.
The spring 2022 issue will also feature the bizarre sauropod Bajadasaurus that was named and described in 2019 and the massive Triassic ichthyosaur from the western United States – Thalattoarchon.
With the recently produced scientific paper published in “Evolutionary Biology” postulating that Tyrannosaurus rex fossils actually represent three species of closely related tyrannosaur: Are there three tyrannosaurus species? One of the co-authors, American palaeontologist Gregoy S. Paul provides a summary of the paper’s findings.
Jam-packed with fascinating articles and features, plus of course, lots of reader submitted artwork, team members at Everything Dinosaur are really looking forward to the arrival of the next edition of “Prehistoric Times”.
