Another example of a pre-production illustratin for Hammer Studios for a film that was never to see the light of day. As faithfully recounted in Marcus Hearn's "The Hammer Vault" (2011), the improbably titled "Zeppelin vs Pterodactyls" had been in gestation for several years as an animated feature (originally pitched as "The Stone Ring"). Chantrell was commissioned to produce artwork (c'1971-72) & Flyers wre produced to promote the film in an attempt to coral together enough finance to complete the project. However, funding was unforthcoming & thus we are left with Chantrell's Flyers as a memento of what might have been.
