Dinotopia Podcast Episode 10

Episode 10 of the Dinotopia Podcast was webcast today, but the file was only up for a week. Check out a more recent post to hear the latest episode.

After his father Arthur left to explore the system of caverns underground, Will Denison picks up the journal to describe his ascent into the mountains.

He and Sylvia meet Levka Gambo in the Tentpole of the Sky. 

I built this whole segment of the story around this painting, "Tentpole of the Sky," which I painted in 1989, before I came up with the idea of a dinosaur utopia.

The Podcast Series
This acoustic adventure was produced by Tom Lopez of the ZBS Foundation, with an original music track by composer Tim Clark.

Episode 11 arrives in a week. Each 10-minute episode will only be live online for one week, and then it will disappear.

If you'd like to purchase the full two-hour Dinotopia podcast right now and hear all twelve episodes back to back in a feature-length production, check out Dinotopia at ZBS Foundation website for the MP3 download.
You can also order the original book from my web store and I'll sign it for you.  It's a great New Year's gift for the imaginative person in your life. (Ships via Media Mail within 24 hours of your order. US orders only for the book, please). The Dinotopia book is also available from Amazon.
There will be an exhibit of Dinotopia originals at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center in Connecticut from February 14 - May 25, 2015. I'll be giving an illustrated lecture there on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 1:00 (Note that the date is different from what we first announced.)

James, I am a big fan of your artwork which never ceases to impress me. I saw one of your exhibits for Dinotopia at Thanksgiving Point, Utah many years back. I am trying to find some reference to the size of the originals to some of the larger paintings for your book but can't find any information. Would you share the size of some of the larger pieces?

CleverKeck, most of the originals are 30% larger than printed size, but the big establishing shots are as big as 24 x 52 inches. Dinosaur Parade and Dinosaur Boulevard, two of the big ones, will be in the Stamford exhibition.
