Conz does dinosaurs

Flemish cartoonist Constantijn Van Cauwenberge (or Conz for short) just finished the design of a new series of stamps for the Belgian Post Office featuring awesome renderings of ten dinosaurs. On his Facebook page, Conz also posted earlier drafts of two of the designs, which arguably are even greater.

The stamps have a release date of September 2015 and will probably cost something like € 7 (price hikes are always possible).
