Paleoartist Survey 2019


Are you creator of paleo art? Consider taking this anonymous survey to help the paleoartist community better understtand the current market condition in the community:

Paleontology, the branch of science seeking to understand extinct life forms and their environments, relies on artists to accurately convey its findings to the broader public. That artistic pursuit is popularly known as paleoart, and it is practiced by a growing number of illustrators, animators, sculptors, and other artists worldwide.

In an effort to better understand how paleoart is practiced professionally, we conducted the first Survey of Paleoartists in 2017. Drafted with critical input from Bob Nicholls, Emily Willoughby, Glendon Mellow, Brian Engh, Mark Witton, and Matt Celeskey, the survey attracted 350 respondents, providing a wealth of new insight about a field that is not often analyzed as a professional pursuit. In the interest of improving this knowledge, the effort continues with the 2019 Survey of Paleoartists. Submissions will be accepted from March 1, 2019 until June 30, 2019.
