Illustrator of the Week - James Gurney

Years ago my brothers and I stumbled across a book that became a source of much amusement and amazement. This book was Dinotopia. The story is of a Will & Arthur Dennison who shipwreck on a lost island, an island wear dinosaurs and humans live together in a sort of Utopian society. The book itself, along with its sequels, is done like a journal of Arthur Dennison. There are pictures of plants, the animals, sleeping arrangements, etc. The illustrations though are incredible. So I give you the work of James Gurney. The first book was turned into a Hallmark movie in which Gurney acted as the artistic director.
