Some things come into your life when you need them and not before. I ADORED James Gurney's Dinotopia books in high school. My childhood room still has the illustrations from his calendar on the walls. I actually pulled out Dinotopia from my book shelf to view before I got started with this project.

But it wasn't until about a week or two ago I found his blog, "Gurney Journey" http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com. That's when I found out about these two books. They were published in 2009 (Imaginative Realism) and 2010 (Color and Light), which is still fairly recent to me.

I'm going to use them like text books. I'm going to devour them and when I come out the other side, I hope to bring what I learn to HammerSong. My skills can only improve from here, and I'm willing to put the time in to make that happen.

Unboxing video in the next post. Ya know, if you're into that sorta thing.
