Jim Burns - Sentry Biot

Ok, so straight of the bat this is a complete lift from Jeff’s superb http://ski-ffy.blogspot.com/ - do check that blog out as Ski-ffy features much more raw and original source material than I have managed to muster…

This menacing Illustration from UK artist Jim Burns is  part of the Harry Harrison’s Mechanismo, more on that at Ski-ffy. The jet itself – although much more butch – bares a strong resemblance to the now obsolete Anglo/French “Sepecat Jaguar” more on that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sepecat_Jaguar

    Ah, Mechanismo (although I had to go look at Jeff’s blog to remember the title). I had that one. Wonderful stuff for an impressionable young boy.

    This is really quite early Jim Burns but still great stuff! If you want to see what he has been up to more recently then take a look at some of the stuff on our website at http://www.artistsuk.co.uk where we have a whole section of his artprints including some stunning Giclees. Apart from being a brilliant artist he’s also a really nice bloke. His work really deserves the widest possible audience.
