The Boneyard XXI Carnival, coming June 7th!


The Flying Trilobite will be playing host to The Boneyard Carnival on Saturday, June 7th!

I'm asking people to submit articles about fossils, palaeontology, and I'm also really hoping we could get a slew of palaeontology-related artwork submitted and featured! I won't limit it to that, so please submit articles about the science that inspires the art as well.

For myself, I'm planning to finish the Precambrian rabbit/trilobite puzzle I started on the Artwork Mondays, and I'll unveil it at the Carnival.

Although I'm thinking of some usual suspects when I say that, I'd love to see some art from some unusual suspects too! Never drawn or painted before? No problem! Let's have some fun! Submit that favourite childhood drawing of something related to the distant past: everyone's got a dinosaur drawing their parental unit hung onto, don't they? Don't be shy! I'm not here to judge, just have a good time.

In case you are unfamiliar with blog carnivals, they usually feature a theme (in this case all things paleo), and move around like a travelling carnival with each edition appearing on a different blog (in this case hosted by a guy who didn't draw trilobites correctly). Your job is to email me about a favourite article, or paleo-related artwork that you have featured on your own blog (to demonstrate your awesomeness), or that you have seen elsewhere online. The day the carnival goes up, you get to go to the host's blog and revel in the collection of brilliance.

The Boneyard XXI! Professional, amateur, or proud parent, let's see some paleo art in the blogosphere!
