I came in and talked about paleontology, different beasts that need more recognition, and particularly my experiences as a paleoartist and how depicting long extinct creatures certain ways can have positive, or sometimes detrimental, effects on how the public thinks about them. I also went into how it's a field that is always changing and that a hard-worked painting can become obsolete in a matter of seconds if a new, groundbreaking discovery is made. (which is annoying, but ultimately still exciting.)
It was a lot of fun and I hope Nerd Nite decides to have me back soon. Until then, here are a few snippets of video from the night.
