It’s almost December, these end of the year holidays always seem to come lightning fast. More importantly however, Star Wars Episode VIII is almost ready to release! Can you believe that there’s a new theatrical released Star Wars movie every year now, probably for all eternity? What an age we live in!

A lot of people ask what type of dinosaur the scientists in the strip are supposed to be, and personally I always envisioned them as a flock of Compys (Compsognathus), though truth be told my cartoon depiction isn’t the best match when compared to the fossilized skeletons they left behind. Really, if I look back in my sketchbook, the genesis of the character design was just an excuse to put goggles onto a tiny dinosaur. I mean, boy, in retrospect my sketchbook is pretty full of dinosaurs wearing goggles. And tiny hats.
