Hi all, Just wanted to share this little loading animation I made for my ICT class. Thought you guys might like it So, it's in total 165 frames. Those were all made on the program Inkscape. Then I used the program GIMP 2 to add all the layers together and make it into a GIF format. (I have no clue if this would be possible in real life back then, but the goal is not to make it scientifically accurate anyways ) (And no, this is not meant to be a specific genus... It's just the Ammonite madeupbymaximus). Let me know your thoughts! Best regards, Max

During the summer months I work for a museum on the "Isle of Wight" and between work hours I go and look for fossils. I have found many things over the years but 2016 was special because I found a hypsilophodon vertebra in matrix! at Grange Chine (Where I happened to be camping). It was professionally prepared out of the rock and from the original specimen I was able to create this illustration. Sadly due to erosion it is missing the front (so you can see the cross-section) even though I would have loved to have the full fossil, I wouldn't have been able to find it as it was the cross-section that gave it away to me in the first place. This illustration was drawn to scale inspired by the traditional fossil drawings of the 17th-19th century using inks, graphite dust and pencil. - I have turned this illustration into a pattern because it's going to be printed onto silk scarves, dresses and wallpaper. Which in turn will be sold in the museum on the island with proceeds going towards fossil conservation. *Feel free to share this illustration with credit, but please ask for permission if you wish to use it.
Mike is a fellow TFF member, but I had no idea he is sooo talented! And not one to blow his own horn, so I am. Larger picture for a better look and more info on this on my blogsite here: http://www.bluffcountryfossils.net/blog/into-the-depths-of-the-devonian-art-by-mike-menasco/
