Ok, the T-Rex is awesome, just not $40k worth of awesome. Would make one hell of a conversation piece, though.

Yeah, for $40,000, I think I could learn how to do that myself.

I like this, but it's yet another unfortunate example of Artist Website Syndrome.

Pity the readers/viewers of the site if you must, but remember that the poor artists who suffer from AWS would lose their Artist card and not get invited to any more exclusive Artist Club parties if they were to make a site that is navigable in a conventional fashion.

It's the gallery that appears to be afflicted with AWS, chimaera, not the artist himself.

If you find his art is too expensive, you can get other cardboard art for less.
