Contest: Your All Yesterdays

Hi everyone! As Irregular Books, we are holding an All Yesterdays contest for the weirdest, most novel and most imaginative depictions of extinct animals you can come up with. Feel free to be creative or speculate with caution. Will you focus on details of anatomy? Weird, unexplored niches? Or some quirky type of behavior? Any idea is welcome as long as it is illustrated in some form.

The All Yesterdays team will judge the entries submitted. We are looking for original, creative concepts that are at least partially in-line with our current understanding of extinct animals. Better artwork will be better, but good art in itself is not a guaranteed win.

1st prize winner will get a signed book, two signed prints and four postcards.
The 2nd will get two signed prints and four postcards.
The remaining best 10 will get two signed postcards each.

The deadline is February 28, 2012.
All entries must be submitted through irregularbooks@gmail.com

So hurry, and share your All Yesterdays with the rest of the world!

You said once in the TetZoo podcast, you'll do something like this with Cryptozoologicon, too.
Do you still think about it?

Nemo, if you search "All Tomorrows Nemo Ramjet", there's this document [link]
This shouldn't be the original book... right? Just want to know where to get pdf, or else the book

Three ideas: cave-dwelling pterosaurs, frugivorous pterosaurs, and something like a sanguivorous Epidexipteryx (I mean, come on! Those pointy teeth had to serve some purpose). Out there for anyone looking for ideas.

If I have time I'll definitely enter this contest! Speculative biology is right up my alley.

but you are supposed to portray an actual extinct animal, in an unusual way ;)

:icondeinonychusempire:
DeinonychusEmpire Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, that's speculative biology isn't it?
Reply
:iconpalaeorigamipete:
palaeorigamipete Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
not necessarily, I would say this contest is just taking some artistic freedom and being unconventional in depicting an existing animal, speculative biology is about speculating entire new species of animals into existence. ;)

:icondeinonychusempire:
DeinonychusEmpire Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Then I suppose our definition of speculative biology merely differs, but anyway what I essentially meant in this context was the unconventional reconstruction of prehistoric life. I haven't read All Yesterdays yet myself, but from all of the fan art I've seen I have a decent grasp on what it's about.
