A Brief History…

The name Tessasaurus was first uttered by a little boy that I used to babysit when I was in high school.  We’d often pretend to be screeching raptors that clawed each other’s guts out.  Eventually he just started referring to me as “The Tessasaurus”.  It was during this time that I also began preferring crayons as an art medium.

One day Dan suggested I make this little hobby a little more seriously and begin posting them on a blog.  At first I was worried that the pressure to be creative or funny would ruin it, but eventually I decided to give it at try.  And so it began…

    Look forward to more of your colonial’s interpretation of the Queen’s English!
