From the reference files

I'm posing as Arthur Denison. From Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara. The book is still currently available at Amazon, but the publisher's warehouse is sold out, awaiting a reprint. We have signed copies here at the Dinotopia Store.

OMG - I was thinking the same thing! ;)

I also totally thought "Tom Baker" when I saw this.

I think we have found an overlap between your fan base and that of Dr Who. Wonderful illustration.

I agree with Drew. And I'm thinking you made Arthur a tad thinner... just sayin'. :)
