    “Implacable November weather. As much mud in the streets as if the waters had but newly retired from the face of the Earth, and would it not be wonderful to meet Megalosaurus, forty feet long or so waddling like an elephantine lizard up Holborn Hill.”

    It’s refreshing to see someone doing something creative with devotion to craftsmanship, something he obviously enjoys. A little island of relief in a world of turmoil.

      The tail of the video on TuoYube has links for the developers Farcebook, Patreon and other sites, through which you can probably contact him. I would guess from there being a Patreon site that he is open to commercial approaches, and every approach saying “I need a Raptor Puppet” is grist to his mill of deciding which products are commercially feasible.
