Jim Burns heading for Allentown
Jim has produced some beautiful new work to take to IlluxCon next week. From 17th to 21st he'll be showing new paintings, including the two above, K.K. and the Maintenance Squad (left) and Anesidora's Choice (right). Also a magnificent collection of giclee prints - these and more.
The Four-Book Finale
In theory Jim's new book, The Art of Jim Burns: Hyperluminal, won't be published until 30th September 2014 but there was a chance to buy an early copy at Worldcon so that visitors to the convention could have theirs signed along with the other three books published by Titan this year. So in the photo above you can see John Harris, Ian Miller, Jim Burns and Fred Gambino.

After all the head-scratching about what should go into the books, the sessions with the Titan team, and the care with presenting all the digital files it was sensational to see how good they all looked, and to have queues of people who wanted to buy them. Many thanks to all involved.
A Lifetime of Artistic Achievement
Jim Burns was 'surprised and honoured' to receive the 'Lifetime Artistic Achievement' Chesley Award at Loncon. I wasn't surprised because I probably know better than most just how hard he's worked over the past forty years, how many authors he's pleased with his visual interpretations of aspects of their novels and how 'in tune' he is with much of what's going on in the whole world of SF. Anyone can see how good an artist he is but I feel privileged to have seen his dedication behind the scenes and witnessed his attention to detail for all those years.

It's a long time to keep a career going and I think this award is very much deserved. And still to have so much energy for new projects - which keep on coming.

The illustration above will show you the full painting, Wanderers, some of which is cropped off on the cover of his new book. And on the right? The Chesley Award. Great stuff.
A review in The Zone
There's a good review for the new book, The Art of John Harris: Beyond the Horizon in The Zone. The word 'inspirational' which is often used when describing John's work, comes up again. Thank you.

The painting here is Threshold, one of the paintings for The Rite of the Hidden Sun. †The book is full of haunting images like this and you can buy it from Titan.
"Best in Show" for John Harris
John Harris's painting The Twin Parliaments of Pyrrus was awarded the prize for the "Best in Show" at Loncon. This was a painting †of a pastel originally inspired by the work John was producing for the "webisodes" for John Scalzi's book The Human Division last year for Tor Books. Many congratulations to John.
George R R Martin at Loncon
Loncon gave Jim Burns a chance to catch up with George R R Martin. It was a few years ago that Jim produced the first hardback cover illustrations for the whole of The Song of Ice and Fire series for Harper Collins and now The Game of Thrones, of course has found a magnificent new life of its own. Here is a photo of them sharing the spread in Jim's new book which shows two other covers for George's books, Dying of the Light and Windhaven. Photo: Courtesy of Robert Wiener - for which, †many thanks.

Giclee prints of Jim's paintings for the series here.
Jim Burns at Loncon - and the Chesley Award
Jim had much to tell us in his interview with Jane Frank. It was good to hear more about how he got started in SF illustration, and Jane was the perfect person to ask the questions as they've worked together for many years. Loncon also saw the publication of Jim's work for Dead Girls, the Richard Calder comic book.

He was delighted to receive the Chesley "Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award" at the convention and to me that seems very much deserved.

You can read more about Jim's work in The Art of Jim Burns: Hyperluminal which has been very well received. There's a BSFA review here.
