Friday follies: Raiders of the lost scap
March 4, 2011
Back in 2005, I made this drawing of the scapula of what would become Brontomerus. By the time we actually got the manuscript together to submit, I completely forgot that it existed! Which is just as well–I like the color photos of the bones in the PDF better than line drawings. Also, I traced this from a photograph of the medial view of the scap that was also at a sort of wonky angle, so the ventral “step” in the scapular border is not apparent (see Taylor et al. 2011: fig. 8 to see what I’m talking about).
Still, good or not, this does illustrate the danger of letting projects drag on forever.
Anyone else have horror stories of completely forgetting about work you’d done? The comment field is open.
