The Professor is a full-time professor of Dragonology at Supposedly Impossible Things University.
This sculpture is life-sized and commissioned in honor of all the contributions he has made to his field in the past century. He is actually descended from a very rare race of gnomes, who reach a maximum height of three and a half inches. The Professor became interested in dragons as a young child and insisted on pursuing that interest academically, despite the disparity between his size and that of his subjects. He is currently the global expert on everything from their history to their eating habits and considers himself honored to number quite a few dragons as his friends — a rarity considering how reclusive and temperamental they are.
Currently resides in Tucson, AZ, when he’s not doing field research.
