Interests
The Book of the Dragon: www.klinebooks.com/kline/image…

was my very first Art Book but not really officially owned. It was around the mid 90s and I was in Year 8 high school, I came into class early, went to take a seat and noticed this book under the table. Flicking quick
ly through it before class started was a jaw dropping experience. It introduced me to Ciruelos' work and to this day in my opinion still one of the best dragon artist of all time. 
I really wanted the book and announced to the whole class room if it belonged to any of them. None of them owned up to it nor were they interested. That's about how far I took it in terms of justifying that this book was going home with me. I knew it was wrong for me to take it but back then it felt like it was left there for me to get inspired.

I think this is when my love of dragons grew and also, this book ignited my passion to develop my skills in drawing the blurry images that were being created inside my head. Prior to this I was more drawing from observation and really relied what was in front of my eyes and ignoring the powers of imagination.

If any was there any early books that first inspired you to begin your epic journey in becoming an artist?
