Prehistoric Times Issue 136 Sneak Peek
The next cover of “Prehistoric Times”, the quarterly magazine for dinosaur fans and prehistoric animal model collectors, will feature a stunning illustration of the fearsome Deinonychus (D. antirrhopus). This magnificent illustration of a deadly dromaeosaurid was created by the very talented Dutch artist Esther van Hulsen.

Esther does not focus solely on illustrating dinosaurs, although she has collaborated on a number of palaeontology projects. She also illustrates living animals capturing their beauty in a variety of traditional media such as acrylics and water colours.
Inside issue 136, Esther discusses her work on a primitive primate. The article will feature many more examples of her art.
John Lavas’s long-running biography of Zdenek Burian provides a segue linking one of the founding fathers of palaeoart to Esther, one of a new generation of exciting illustrators. John Lavas focuses on Burian’s sauropods.
Phil Hore provides the low down on the low slung thyreophoran Sauropelta and tells the tale of the bizarre Longisquama (L. insignis) that was named and scientifically described fifty years ago.
Scottish scientist and science writer Dougal Dixon explains all about the dinosaur models he has created during lockdown and Canada is represented by palaeontologists Darren Tanke and Jordan Mallon who discuss the early illustrations of the eminent and highly influential Robert Bakker.
Randy Knol highlights spinosaurs and the various models that have been produced to represent this unusual family of theropods, whilst fellow American Tracy Ford digs into the dermal armour of Ankylosaurus, with lots of beautiful, armoured dinosaur illustrations too.
