I recently picked up these three pieces of original dinosaur art. I feel so happy and lucky to have these and really wanted to share so forgive the so-so photos. They are unsigned but I think by the same artist and I believe date to ca. 1970-75. The small one is a Nothosaurus and measures 22.5 x 16.5 cm. The middle one measures 30.5 x 30.5 cm and features six dinosaurs. The large one, a tour de force managing to fit 15 dinosaurs on the paper, measures 51.5 x 36 cm. After looking at them for a while it occurred to me that they seemed familiar. Spoiler Now I'm not positive, but I think they are by the same artist that did the header and backing cards for the Marushin dinosaur series sofubi. These are two header cards and an open backing card from the large size vinyls. These are three headers from the small size toys. Check out the similarities between the middle size painting and the backing card especially the Allosaurus and the overall composition. and the Edaphosaurus from the middle and large size paintings. I would love to hear people's opinions on this. Are they by the same artist or is someone copying someone else's style? Also, these most likely were used as illustrations in a boy's magazine and I would like to track down copies. If anyone has any leads please post them here or pm me. Also post your vintage dinosaur illustrations from books or magazines here. Thanks!
