they went to extinction by pettryb they went to extinction by pettryb
Illustration for a bookproject which I'm working on for my thesis. The book is about a girl who loves dinosaurs, but there's also a message about environmental issues and animal extinction. This painting presents the example of animals already extinct: woolly mammoth, bali/javan tiger, quagga, thylacine and dodo ...and of course the dinosaur.

More of the same project:

I'm always sad when I think about this... Especially about the thylacine's story. I can't support people who don't take care animals !!!

oh gosh, this is just so beautiful and it has a great message! It makes me think a little about my childhood since I used to love dinosaurs very much ^^
