Jim Burns is a Welsh artist and illustrator born in Cardiff. Like Ridley Scott he attended St. Martins School of Art.

His imaginative airbrushed designs have graced the covers of books by the likes of Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Philip K. Dick, Robert Silverberg, George R.R. Martin, Michael Moorcock, Philip Jose Farmer and Ray Bradbury, since the 1970's. 

Burns has long been one of the UK's most acclaimed sci-fi artists, he remains the only non-American ever to have won a prestigious Hugo award for art, and has won more British Science Fiction Awards than any other writer or artist. 

His work has incredible detail. Every part is given equal importance. Bizzare aliens, ornate spacecraft and women are portrayed with vivid contrasting colours, using acryllics, oils and digital media.

Originally attached to Ridley Scott's Dune project, he then worked on pre-production concepts for BladeRunner, when Dune was shelved. He has also had books of his own works published: Lightship, Planet StoryMechanismo, Transluminal and Imago.

If I had to pick an all-time favorite from te British, it'd be Jim Burns, and hands-down. Some of the most exotic, and even erotic Sci-Fi art ever to grace the world's vision. PLANET STORY (1979), was my favorite book featuring his art, and still have it, too.
