I was looking for a quick project that I could have fun with. I had designed some icons for the Noun Project a while back so I thought it'd be nice to try my hand at that again.

I chose some cool dinosaurs that are under-represented in traditional dinosaur media. I support dino diversity! From left to right above: an ankylosaurus, a hypsilophodon and a protoceratops.
