The dinosaur at my coffee shop

I’m not sure how this happened, but I forgot to publish this post from last month (15 May). Better late than never, which might be appropriate for my subject matter.

I was thinking that there wasn’t much to draw today when I went for my regular cup of coffee then I remembered the dinosaur next to the coffee shop. Yup, a Postosuchus, a North American dinosaur that was part of the ancestral lineage of today’s crocodiles.  Of course this is a model rather than the real thing and belongs to the reptile shop next door to the coffee shop. While our friend looked quite jaunty over Christmas, sporting a red Santa hat, I am glad I wasn’t around when it was alive as it was one of the top predators of it’s era.  Here is my quick pen sketch.

As someone who fancies her powers of observation, that fact that I never thought to draw this chap before seems to be rather a lapse.
