Were you fascinated by dinosaurs when you were a kid? Were you a die-hard fan of Jurassic Park? Were you always going to dinosaurs movies and events? Well, this one is for you!
Have you ever thought about dinosaurs and people peacefully living together in the old West? What if dinosaurs never disappeared and humans would have tamed them? What if people used dinosaurs instead of horses? What would have the world looked like? Shaun Keenan imagined all of these in his collection of illustrations called “Dinosaurs of the Wild West”. Here you’ll meet cowboys and sheriffs fighting outlaws, Native American warriors and settlers, mountain men and many adventures of the Wild West. All of these together with a lot of dinosaurs in a beautiful set of illustrations.
How about a triceratops ridden by a zulu warrior or a samurai riding on the back of an allosaurus? The lives of all these behemoths are imagined almost in all the important periods of humanity, by this American artist. His main point of interest was the Wild West, though, and the book “Dinosaurs of the Wild West” is a 200-pages collection with these prehistoric creatures in western American scenery.
So, if you want to get a taste of what a dinosaur would have looked like in the Wild West, take a scroll down these 24 illustrations and you would feel sorry these generous giants disappeared some millions of years ago.
