Spotlight: James Gurney's Gurney Journey & Janet Echelman - Taking Imagination Seriously

The first of the "Spotlight" posts is a double feature, firstly about one of the web's best (and most eclectic!) blogs for art - James Gurney's Gurney Journey. The description from the blog:

"This daily weblog by Dinotopia creator James Gurney is for illustrators, plein-air painters, sketchers, comic artists, animators, art students, and writers. You'll find practical studio tips, insights into the making of the Dinotopia books, and first-hand reports from art schools and museums. Plus, for you lateral thinkers and pop-culture trekkers, a few bizarre rabbit trails."

The second part is a video that Tom Crowe suggested - Janet Echelman: Taking Imagination Seriously. The description from the site: 

"Janet Echelman found her true voice as an artist when her paints went missing -- which forced her to look to an unorthodox new art material. Now she makes billowing, flowing, building-sized sculpture with a surprisingly geeky edge. A transporting 10 minutes of pure creativity."
