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.

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 ^^

It reminds me of a scene in Porko Rosso where the pilot briefly crosses over but does not die:

"I am thinking of the moment when, after being separated from his friends in battle, the protagonist encounters them again above the clouds only to realize they didn't survive after all, but are in fact spirits ascending - still in their planes - to join the rest of the dead in heaven."

Not only do I love your style and the story your art presents, but I'm also very passionate about the state of our environment so this particular piece really resonates with me. Beautiful work as always.

I hope the message comes across when the book is finished, even if the illustrations or the story it self are not pointing any fingers. :hmm:
