Joe Taylor: painter, paleontologist and preacher.

Joe Taylor is a new acquaintance of mine in Texas. He owns the Mt. Blanco Fossil Co. in Crosbyton, Texas. Before he became a paleontologist he went to LA to study painting and got a gig painting album cover billboard signs for retail stores like Peaches Records. Joe wants to sell this entire collection which is why I am posting it here. Just trying to help a brother out. Click here for the fossil company website. He does really cool casts of awesome fossils and has books and stuff for sale too. He is NOT a Darwinist and is a very interesting guy. He preaches the word of God at the Crosbyton Primitive Baptist Church

Lots more pictures below
