Little Known Facts About Mort Künstler

Two Tyrannosaurus Fighting for Duckbill

...Mort Künstler did this drawing of two fighting Tyrannosaurus for Dinosaur Story?

This drawing shows a Tyrannosaurus trying to protect his food, a recently killed duckbill, from another Tyrannosaurus. Joanna Cole, a now famous children’s book author, wrote Dinosaur Story and Scholastic Book Services commissioned Mort Künstler to do the art. This was before the age of movies like Jurassic Park and computer imaging, so Künstler needed to do research the way he still does. He found a top authority in the field, Dr. Eugene S. Gaffney of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, and worked with him to ensure accuracy.
