About this project

Greetings! I’m Andy Nguyen.

Since I was little, I have always wanted to collect dinosaurs. My cheapest option was to get a poster depicting as many of these prehistoric beasts as possible. Unfortunately, there were none that suited my style, especially none containing a gazillion cute dinos crammed in one neat sheet of paper. Hence the idea for my poster came into being.

Update 6/2/13: The Dinosaur Poster is completed!

The Dinosaur Poster contains 56 prehistoric reptiles, 1 bird, and 1 Homo sapiens The animals are depicted to scale with each other, allowing you to see if Tyrannosaur can really gobble up a Velociraptor, or compare the length of the Loch-Ness-Monster-inspiration Elasmosaurus with the famously long Diplodocus.

Velociraptor? Please!

The Dinosaur Poster is also up-to-date with modern scientific theories - the animals stand in the correct postures, and raptors are feathered. Also, the animals are arranged according to evolution (phylogeny tree), ending with the modern bird. The phylogeny tree is shaded according to the three dinosaur periods: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. Did you know that Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus lived in different times, so they could not fight each other to the death? Take that, historically-inaccurate dinosaur battles!

The Dinosaur Poster is designed to fit your room, school, office, or any place where Homo sapiens can look at their reptilian predecessors and be reminded of their supremacy as mammals.

Design

Each creature was originally hand-drawn. The poster is 24”x36” and printed locally on 100lb Gloss Text weight paper and coated AQ 1 Side. It will be shipped in a tube to maintain paper quality.

Now that I am done with the poster, I need as much support as possible to reach my goal of $2,000. Funds will be used for printing/shipping the posters. I want to keep the poster at a reasonable price, and at the same time I want it to be delivered to you in the best condition.

Thank you for your interest!

Risks and challenges

Now that I have finished the Dinosaur Poster, the biggest challenge is to reach my goal of $2,000. Also, I will also have to focus on the assembly of all the posters for shipping. I am OCD when it comes to getting the information correct, so I will get your address at least triple-checked. I am set on getting the dinosaur poster to your doorstep as soon as possible, in late June or early July. Thank you for your support.
