Following our SciArt of the Day tradition of having something silly on the weekends (we’ve only been doing this 3 weeks – we have traditions?!?) I bring you Raven Amos’s Cretaceous Critter Coffee Company, starring the lovely caramel-brown Tropeognathus that also features as Raven’s blog banner.

This image makes me crave coffee on a hot dusty day. With extra calcium beverage stirred in.

Raven Amos has been seen on Symbiartic before, and her Troodon image was eventually an Image of the Week.

Last year, she and fellow artist Scott Elyard had the Dinosaurs & Robots show in Anchorage, and are following it up this year with (of course) Archosaurs and Automata. You can help them get ready for the show by donating to their IndieGoGo campaign, and you’d better do it because: archosaursautomata = awesome.
