David Patrick Kelly
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I prefer to be called by my name David, but I also go by my nickname Dinosaur Dave or just Dino Dave.
I am a High School Graduate and currently attending Widener University.
I've graduated from D.A.R.E. and will never smoke or drink. I've also got a very clean mouth that doesn't favor profanity or curse words.
I will upload my artwork whenever I can, but College will make me busy most of the time (not fair).
I have a goal to find a career in paleontology, as I love dinosaurs and enjoy studying them and teaching anything I know about them to friends and family. I also do very good behavioral and vocal impressions of dinosaurs (I've practiced for 16 years!), especially the T-rex of Jurassic Park. Unfortunately, my lousy camera stinks at recording sounds, and they can't be published for anybody to hear over the world.
I have artistic talent, but its not eccentric (like those pictures of environments and beings that have to symbolize emotions and statuses). I'm pretty sure most paleontologists have to have some experience with art, which would be needed to bring extinct animals back to life in drawings.
I'm also currently writing a dinosaur novel with a unique story (don't expect any spoilers).

Okay, I’ve just finished watching Blackfish on Netflix. I’ve previously read about how much Orca shows have been boycotted, and I see that it was a tragedy to even attempt domesticating them.

I’ve only seen one Orca show in my life, when I was about 10 years old around Thanksgiving. Back then, I wasn’t aware of the issues this documentary showed me. Now, I’m divided on my experience: I’m part of the generation that witnessed imprisoned animals forced to do work against their will. I know I applauded at the stunts, and I admit they were spectacular, but I wouldn’t want to be jailed and forced to perform.

I hope Orcas are never bred in captivity anywhere again. They are too big for any tank they put them in and are too emotionally anthropomorphic for captivity. They’re not endangered enough in the wild to face extinction. People at SeaWorld have made a mistake in training them for entertainment, but people who’ve stepped up to reveal the atrocities of captive whales.

Let’s hope humanity will not repeat history. If you love something, namely an animal, let them be free and instead of arresting them for amusement, go visit them where they’re comfortable.

Jurassic World: Create a Dinosaur (4/14/17)
I visited the Jurassic World Exhibition at the Franklin Institute on April 14th, and here's proof. It's basic, but that's how I like my dinosaurs. I think it'll serve as a desktop screensaver.

My Desktop (5/14/2017)

The Spring Semester is over for me, and I can safely say that it’s the worst semester, in terms of assignments, I’ve ever had to endure: 8 page paper on British Literature that cost me a full night of sleep (which I have yet to make up for as of now), one portfolio for both of my creative writing classes, a string of poor grades for my Astronomy exams, which have been sufficed by my cumulative final, and a philosophy paper. And to add an insult to the mental injury, many of my fellow Seniors are graduating while I stay behind to accomplish an extra semester in the fall.

Recently, I've been feeling that Chance Sureshot,Toothpick Sally and Recap Robot should deserve more love.

Maybe, but it was probably best that the show ends with a bang (No pun intended), before it suffers what SpongeBob has gone through.
