I had the day off for President's Day, and we got an unexpected 6" of snow during the night, so I stayed inside all day and drew this.
Like most kids, I was crazy about dinosaurs. Even though I was only 6 year old, I could rattle off incredibly complicated polysyllable dinosaur names better than most paleontologists. I used to draw them incessantly as well.
Unfortunately, the more science learns about dinosaurs, the less awesome they become. The current theory is that they were very birdlike, and many species even had feathers! Somehow an enormous T-Rex just doesn't seem as awe inspiring when you realize it was just a giant chicken.
Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet. The "Gonk" text was hand-lettered.
Here's the original doodle of Gonk. I doodled him during a meeting. I tried to add a little more energy to the final drawing, especially in his neck and tail.
