One could ask what good or use any art is really I suppose. Unless one is 
producing sketches for a paleo textbook or something like "The 
Dinosauria"(and perhaps not even then), I don't see how the two are 
relevant to each other. Lack of evidence for large anthropomophized 
purple theropods didn't deter certain content creators at PBS from their
benighted attempts, so who's to say that there's any real linkage?
