Short films, animation, music and illustration by Brian Engh (aka The Historian Himself). Don't Mess With Dinosaurs is the aesthetic mantra behind the work displayed on this website. It attempts to express the necessity of respect for the ancient forces of the universe, and the sense of wonder and awe that they give me. In other words, respect to the ancients.
