Southern California Artist Draws Dinosaur for National Draw a Dinosaur Day

Submission of Prettyprettyprincessaurus entered for countrywide holiday.

Online PR News – 01-February-2015 – Los Angeles, CA – Southern California resident and occasional artist Bil Gaines has drawn a dinosaur for National Draw a Dinosaur Day, according to sources. The dinosaur drawing has been officially submitted and is viewable online.

Gaines has been drawing dinosaurs for the annual festival since 2014. This year’s entry into the national lexicon of dinosaur drawings is titled “Prettyprettyprincessaurus” and can be viewed at, the official website of Bil Gaines and his drawings. The creature represented would have lived about 160 million years ago in the late Jurassic period if it had existed, and would have stretched approximately 45 feet long.

“I enjoy drawing dinosaurs,” said Gaines.

The feet are always the trickiest part, he went on to say, and followed up by noting that he has never been one to back down from a challenge. Gaines said he has been drawing dinosaurs unofficially since 1985, but never submitted an official drawing to any governing body or organization until he found out about National Draw a Dinosaur Day on social media.

National Draw a Dinosaur Day occurs every January 30 in the United States and in some parts of Canada. The holiday is officially recognized as noted by the website, and unofficially by paleontologists and dinosaur enthusiasts everywhere. It is not known exactly when the annual celebration started, but scientists believe it was within the last decade. It is said to have started as a thought experiment that yielded a growing number of real-world results. Thanks in part to social media platforms like Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter, the celebration has expanded significantly every year, and forecasts indicate this trend will continue.
