Back to retro 70’s Sci-Fi with another explosive illustration from Blog Fav Peter Andrew Jones. This Menacing looking craft has a strong resonance of past military avation tech, which is why I’ve selected it – very Harrier Jump Jet – http://is.gd/1qprC
“To Here and the Easel” dates from 1974 and is scanned from Peter’s glossy compendium Book “Solar Wind” which I’m lucky enough to have a copy of – book is available as well as prints and more at: http://peterandrewjones.net
This will be the last post of the year, so I’m going to end with a sample from my personal 2008 Blog favourite: Peter Andrew Jones. This piece is titled “The Zap Gun” and dates from 1974.
Many thanks for all comments, suggestions and contributions, it’s great to see so many people enjoy all this nonsense as much as I do! Happy New Year!!!

A tropically coloured sci-fi illustration from Peter Andrew Jones, this scan taken from his Book “Solar Wind” published 1980. Solar Wind is available via Peter’s site I believe: http://peterandrewjones.net/iacg.htm or via Amazon / Ebay.

No one does Sci-Fi costumes quite like Peter Andrew Jones; a ribbed and embossed figure-hugging environment suit laced with intricate tubes and wiring. A slick helmet too with its slightly elongated shape and tech swoosh logo, all add to the cool factor, and as with Blood Money – Peter Andrew Jones an excellent choice of Ray-Gun!

More game box artwork, this time from 1990 ‘Blood Money’ produced for legendary UK software house Psygnosis, art by Peter Andrew Jones. Great moody character, that’s more reminiscent of Star Trek then Stars Wars (ie: a lot f*cking cooler) anyway love the tiny piggy eyes! The shot is ripped from the excellent Mobygames.com site, which is like imdb.com for computer games, well worth checking out if you are a gamer.
