In Pursuit of Cryptozoology

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 4th, 2007

You have many choices of events to attend during the last quarter of 2007. Here are some visual reminders of the upcoming end of the year Cryptozoology conferences:

Mass Monster Mash

Patterson-Gimlin Film 40th Anniversary Celebration

7e Colloque Européen de Cryptozoologie

2007 Texas Bigfoot Conference

Mythic Creatures

Saturday, December 1, 2007, “Introduction to Cryptozoology,” Mythic Creatures, American Museum of Natural History, New York City, New York.


The AMNH model of Gigantopithecus is part of the “Mythic Creatures” exhibition.

These conferences and other recent gatherings have produced some rather elaborate and intriguing forms of promotional art, demonstrating a new love of monsters, creatures, and cryptids on posters. Perhaps we are entering a new era of creative imagery in cryptozoological art reflected in the digital and paper posters issuing from these events? I feel a new collection subcategory developing on the horizon, folks.

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.

    Which will you be attending Loren? I’d love to go to all of them but I’ve got work and school. Oh, well maybe next year.

  2. Rappy responds:

    Wow, that gigantopithecus model is quite nice, and the DAZ dragon is stylish too. Too bad I really don’t have the funds to go to all these events.

  3. shovethenos responds:

    That’s a really male orangutanish take on gigantopithecus. Interesting interpretation.

  4. bill green responds:

  5. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Wow. All these cool events and no money to attend any of them 🙁

    PS: Yeah, that giganto is very impressive, but I agree with shovethenos that it looks too orangutanish . But it’s nice they put it with a mountain background.

  6. Cryptid Hunt responds:

    Man! I would love to go to these kinds of conferences. I wish they had this stuff around the Buffalo NY area.
