  7. Hi, I am impressed with your art work. The way you draw dinosaurs is how I have always envisioned them in my mind. Is it possible to buy a print from you? roryps337@mail.com

  9. Hello Dusan!

    I just got to know your drawings and they are simply mind-blowing. I work for The Creators Project latin america (The arts and creativity branch of Vice Media " vice.com ") and I would love to do a feature of your stuff in the page, so I'm asking basically for two things: first, if I can have your permission to grab the images from here, and second, if you want to do a short interview for the article.

    If that is so please contact me through my email sergio_pgp@hotmail.com

    Once again congratulations on your work and I hope we can speak soon.
    Greetings.
    SPGP

  10. First, I'm sorry: I regret 😳 and apologize 😲 that I cannot post in your own language. I only speak English, and a small amount of German and American Sign Language (very small). :-/

    You are not only talented but imaginative -- you could begin illustrating children's (and other!) books today. (As long as you kept up on your schoolwork, heh heh. ;)

    [I feel I ought to mention here, that I love to brainstorm--try to think up as many ideas as I can--and that {the article about you, your blogspot, your art, you} inspire me. I hope that you keep being inspired, yourself!]

    However, looking to the future, and thinking of your current (& thorough!) knowledge and interests....

    There exist many fine guides and art books concentrating on birds, mammals, reptiles/snakes, fish, and even plants. However, I would love to see (I have my favorites, but pick as many or as few as you like!):

    1. A comprehensive and colorful guide to dinosaurs, written like a field guide, complete with distinguishing characteristics (details that allow you to tell similar species apart), even if they are just bumps on a specific bone. This could be an enormous undertaking that is beloved by both fans of nature guides, and actual, working geologists and fossil-hunters. Or, it could be two books/guides: one colorful guide to how each dinosaur might have looked, combined with nature-guide information like geological range, span of time it lived, and other distinguishing/behavioral/naturalistic information we know (or, are pretty confident) about it. The other, a black & white field guide to identifying dinosaurs and other extinct creatures from the characteristics of their fossils (bones, eggs, scat [poop! fossilized poop! 💩], food--inside and out--, feathers, scales, claws, teeth, location, geological era, et cetera). But--oh my goodness--I don't even know if you are interested in any of those things! So, anyway, at least the action-oriented pictures of dinosaurs as they might have looked.

    2. Comprehensive (full and complete) guides to our most numerous mammal family: bats (insectivorous and fruit-eating bats could be separate guides).

    3. Who has ever really taken on the task of illustrating all of the rodents? They are numerous and extremely varied.

    4. For that matter, the insects! Soooo maaaany insects.

    ...to be continued -lk...

  11. 5. It sounds like, with your current knowledge, you could take this one on today: marsupials of the world. Mostly in Australia of course, but we in the United States (some of us, anyway) are fond of our little Virginia opossum, who can eat a huge number of ticks every night and don't carry rabies. They are therefore an animal that not only thwarts disease, but cuts down on garden pests and unsightly carrion at the same time. Never having been to Australia 🇦🇺 (*sigh* -- one of my dream destinations, along with New Zealand 🇳🇿 , Madagascar 🇲🇬, and the Galápagos Islands), I don't know how many beautifully-illustrated marsupial guides exist, so you would want to check that out first.

    6. Now we are getting to some of my favorite brainstorming/ideas, and this one seems to suit my tiny glimpse of your talents to a "tee" (perfectly). A series of posters that bring to life whole ecosystems [my goodness, that is a whole other great idea -- ecosystems of the world, as they exist today] ...ecosystems or snapshots in time, from as early as the very beginning of life itself. This could be in concert with (along with) dinosaur guides (bones and/or artistic representations), or a whole separate project. As I envision (see, imagine) it, posters would not only illustrate which mostly-extinct creatures lived when, but who lived together at the same time, as well as how they might have interacted. Some great things about a project like this, in addition to the fact that you are already quite talented at this sort of drawing together (pun intended) of disparate/different species/families/animals and showing them in action:
    a) you could begin anywhere in time that you like, and we will all love it.
    b) you could choose any scheme you like, as far as how you choose the poster subject matter. I suggest you start out with _just prior to each mass extinction_, but you could do a massive set of every million years of evolution, every ten thousand years of man, or whatever you like.
    c) you could change the parameters (umm, time/place/frequency) to do as many or as few posters as you like...or simply pause/stop if you prefer to pursue something else.
    [Again, I *highly* recommend that you at least begin with posters--or groups of posters, broken down by ecosystem--of "just before each major extinction." Perhaps including the current one, which is at least partially being driven/caused by humans.

    7. As mentioned above, and possibly along with other extinction times, a set of posters or an oversized "coffee table" book of colorful and complete illustrations of each world ecosystem, as well as each "transition zone", or connecting area between established ecosystems. There are a lot of these, and transition zones where ecosystems overlap are places where there tend to be a lot of species in a small, very lush area.

    ...to be continued -lk...

  12. 8. My very most favorite idea is to do one or both of the following, in blog format (which could later turn into oversized books, so make sure you hang on to complete ownership of your work):
    a) illustrations, in their natural habitat/ecosystem and complete with nearby species, of newly-discovered species. There may be more of these than you expect, so you might pick a favorite group, like amphibians, birds, reptiles, a family of mammals, etc. I feel this would be both rewarding, and very, very popular -- as would the next one.
    b) immortalization (a concrete record, a reckoning) of species that--daily--become extinct. Again, in their natural habitat, with other species that live near them. Frogs and other amphibians are particularly at risk, as well as being "indicator species" that measure or indicate the health of the ecosystem they live in. This could include descriptions of why they might have been important (to humans, to the ecosystem they live in). It could be a set of images -- one with the creature in its habitat, one with the same habitat with dotted outlines representing the lost species, and another with the creature from the outline. The first could describe the ecosystem in general; the second [actually, perhaps the second could be the creature by itself, without the ecosystem around it] could describe what the creature added to the ecosystem, and the third [the ecosystem with dotted lines or cutouts representing the missing creature or creatures] could detail what was lost -- to the ecosystem, to medicine, to inventions, to humans, to the country, to the world.

    That is all the brainstorming I can think of right now. I have more to say, but I will say it in another note -- I'm not even sure the blog comments are allowed to be this long. :-P

  13. Some random thoughts, for you and your family:

    1. Make sure to stick to your schooling, and not let all this attention to go to your head. Be yourself.
    2. Identify who of your friends and family and eventually staff are good and true, and put hard thought into who loves you, respects you, is honest, and trustworthy. People who "have your back." Don't be afraid to take one or more of these loyalists with you when you are choosing agents, collaborators, schools, lawyers, accountants, etc. They can help you sniff out a rat, and find more people who will be loyal and trustworthy. Especially look for one of these people who can speak multiple languages fluently, and another who is skilled at "reading people." (This means, umm, knowing what people are thinking and when they are being honest.)
    3. Make sure to get at least one person around you who can help you protect your intellectual property.
    4. Experiment with color -- even if you are colorblind or something. You might be surprised at the new worlds it opens up. And whether it is pencils or pens or watercolors, don't be afraid to try coloring outside the lines.
    5. Don't stop being imaginative and drawing whatever you like (knights? castles? dragons?), even if you end up getting jobs or contracts for other things. I believe that those kinds of efforts will keep you open, will keep you sharp.
    6. Use your fame for good. I mean this both in terms of your mark on the world, as well as the world's mark on you. On the one hand, this means that you have a lot of talent, and you could use it to help people see the world the way you do, or learn to love animals they've never really looked at before, or identify species in their neighborhoods and the wild, or become aware of the number of species that have never been discovered, or of the ones who disappear every day. On the other hand, you would do well to take care of your future while you are the center of attention. I know you are young and that sounds like a lot, but if you are smart and keep loyal and smart people around you, you can make the whole rest of your life more successful. Firstly, you _don't_ have to decide exactly what you want to do for the rest of your life. It's a little-known fact, but even when you're getting into college--even when you're already in college--you don't even have to know. Even if you do know, it is ok to change your mind. So, don't worry about that part. BUT, there are things you can do now, and relationships you can forge, that will put you on a good path. Reach out to professors and colleges who do things that interest you. And not just one, either -- go for at least five. Ten, even. Think of places like Princeton, Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, the Art Institute, Yale, Stanford, MIT, and (oddly?) University of Wisconsin--Madison. Reach out to E.O. Wilson's Encyclopedia of Life (eol.org). Go to a library and look up all of the field guides. Pick the top 2-3 publishers that you like--for whatever reason--and write to them, with links to your stories and your work. Just see what they say -- the scariest thing they can do is say they're not interested. What about National Geographic online? Try to find people who are actually out in the field, doing what you want to do, or discovering and cataloging and naming the creatures you want to draw.
