Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Thanks for this post. It explains the transformation clearly.

    Still it was an interesting picture while it lasted.

  2. LittleMike responds:

    As someone who uses Photoshop on a daily basis (as part of my job) there was never any doubt in my mind that the ‘Dead Bigfoot’ picture COULD be a fake. However it’s useful to see some do a step by step of just how it could be a fake just to give people an idea that such a thing is relatively simple to create.

    The thing is, it COULD have been real – for example I’m sure the above deconstructions could have been applied to a perfectly real photograph – but the lack of any provenance associated with the Dead Bigfoot picture was for me the most telling issue.

    By the way, this is my first post. Apologies if I have rambled on – I’ve been a silent visitor to this site for years so I’ve got lots (about nothing much) to say! 🙂

  3. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Big round of applause, Mr. Lowe 🙂

  4. cliff responds:

    Great deconstruction, good work David Lowe, kudos to you.

  5. norman-uk responds:

    Am I wrong or has Loren Coleman’s face (not as good as the original of course) with added hair, been added in place of the man’s with the peashooter?

    If the hoaxer was a jokester then wouldn’t this please him mightily?

  6. john5 responds:

    Although rough around the edges – Good Job! My question has been answered. Thanks David for the revelation and Loren for the posting!

  7. pac responds:

    I can’t understand why you say that the dead bigfoot is a bear, because of the ears. Why, have you ever seen bigfoot’s ears? They maybe look like bears and the body of a bear is not like that.

    Guys look at the bear legs and look and the bigfoot legs, bigfoot legs are much more bigger and that is not photoshop (the legs).

  8. Laeria responds:

    The legs could have also easily been photoshopped

    Ugghh.. disappointingly likely… great work, Loren. I always thought this picture was indeed suspect, because if one was Really posing for a picture w/a large, dead primate they’d murdered, wouldn’t they want to have the FACE be visible??? But, then I figured maybe that assumption was incorrect for some odd reason…? maybe this is just a very odd fellow, w/a fetish for primate backs & glutes, & so this is how he wanted the animal positioned for his triumphant trophy picture documenting his great feat in having killed this beast from a distance w/a slug thrower that required little skill & no strength on his part… But now, thanks to this post, it all makes sense… in this position, one would see a murdered bear’s head.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
