Hello! My name is Robert Jack, a Michigander born and raised. I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I enjoy a wide variety of subjects and mediums, but I am best known for my paleoart, which involves the artistic reconstruction of prehistoric life. I often strive to depict dinosaurs, not as movie monsters, but as actual wildlife in natural settings. Thank you for your consideration!

The name Suchomimus means "crocodile mimic," which is appropriate considering the long, toothy snouts that these dinosaurs are known for. This 24x36" painting depicts an adult Suchomimus leading a trio of youngsters along a rushing river in Early Cretaceous West Africa.The painting was done with casein, a milk-based paint that may be the oldest kind of paint known to man. I find something very special about using an ancient medium to depict such ancient animals. This also happens to be one of my largest pieces to date.
