Most of Logan’s marketing was presented in crisp, moody black-and-white, but the film itself is not—and its lonesome Western backdrops and dystopian road-trip vibes come through in some of the movie’s concept art, created by illustrator and designer Shae Shatz.

These pieces are primarily evocative, but if you saw the movie this past weekend you’ll surely recognize where some of these settings ended up in the film. Seeing the cowboy hat on Logan in these paintings is also a nice touch—although he didn’t wear one in the movie, the film is basically a Western anyway, so it fits perfectly.

These are beautiful, but Logan was not set in a dystopia. It was a dystopia for mutants, but for everyone else, it was very much near-future status quo. Much of the film LOOKED like a barren world because Logan, Charles, and Laura tried their best to stay in remote places, especially their first hideout and then Eden. When they visit the casino or when you see Logan’s limo customers, or the family farm, you can see it’s life as usual for non mutant-kind. And the line about tigers being extinct is pretty plausible; you don’t need some kind of apocalypse (no pun intended) to have 0 tigers by 2029.
