Biography

Julius Csotonyi began illustrating dinosaurs seriously in 1998. Since then he has produced work for 25 publishers and museum exhibits, with a client list that includes National Geographic; Scholastic Inc; the Royal Tyrrell Museum; and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Julius also has considerable academic expertise, having completed both a BSc in Ecology and an MSc in Environmental Biology.

Steve White has edited, written and illustrated comics, magazines and books for a quarter of a century. He has drawn dinosaurs since he was four, for fun and professionally, and has been called “the John Milius of paleoart” (by fellow paleoartist Dan Varner). He is currently a senior editor for Titan magazines.
