Re: The Wonderful World of Weird Tyrannosaurs
Ahhh, the problems of being too stylish... Yes the anatomy is
outlandish and I regard it more like a surrealist painting than a
paleo-wildlife effort but the it is a powerful piece of artwork (and
inspired me a good deal... for the rest of my life!).
Thanks to Donna Braginetz I know now the name of the artist of my
childhood: FHK Henrion, educated in the University of Plymouth.
It was an age of innocence regarding the dinosauria... I "forgive"

outlandish and are a lot less forgivable (even today!).

putting the other leg on the carcass was an after thought by some
idiot of an art director. The artist probably argued that it
wouldn't work...the art director told him he would withhold his
foodstamps until he did his bidding. No wonder the artist didn't
put his name to it!
