Peter Andrew Jones illustrated the cover of The Book of Frank Herbert (1973), a collection of ten short stories published in literary magazines between 1952 and 1973, three of them unpublished yet. The cover art used in this version (Panther Books, UK) illustrates well the risks that the contempt for ecology would cause in the world, with the ground very similar to the horizon and the scorching heat coming from the sky, amidst the alien hostility that hunts with dogs and spaceships. We know what to do not to reach the universe that Herbert proposed in fiction, but we do not know how to create art as impactful as Jones', only by living your art in the midst of science fiction even...

Concludes this month's post by Pedro.

Post 4 of 5.

When
Frank Herbert's second wife passed away in 1984, David Lynch released the film version of Dune, which was more successful in Europe and Japan than in his own country. The following year, he married Theresa Shackelford. Later, Dune inspired games like Dune and Dune II-The Building of a Dinasty (Virgin Entertainement), as well as RPG versions.

Post 3 of 5.

Frank Herbert worked for newspapers like Seattle Star, Oregon Statesman, Santa Rosa Press-Democrat, and published California Living magazine. His first published tale, Looking for Something, appeared in the April 1952 issue of Startling Stories magazine. His career as a novelist began with the publication of The Dragon in the Sea in 1955. From 1959 to 1965 he wrote Dune, published in Analog magazine in two volumes, winning the Nebula Prize for Best Novel of 1965. However, his book of "ecological science fiction" would become a best seller only in 1968, and would become a saga with the continuations Dune Messiah (1969), Children of Dune (1976), God Emperor of Dune (1981), Heretics of Dune (1984) and Chapterhouse: Dune (1985).

He became a writing teacher at Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1969, worked in Vietnam and Pakistan as a social and ecological consultant in 1972, and was director of photography for the television program The Tillers. He later published other books as well, almost all New York Times best sellers. He used to work on several books at the same time. Frank Herbert used his science fiction novels to explore complex ideas involving philosophy, psychology, politics, and ecology. And so he attracted readers from different fields.

The fanaticism of some fans was so great that they considered Herbert a true guru while trying to create a cult in his honor.

Post 2 of 5

Since he was young, Frank Herbert dreamed of becoming a writer. At the age of 18 he moved to his uncles' house in Oregon, where he started working in Oregon Statesman. Then he served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He married Flora Parkinson in 1941 and a year later his first daughter Penny Herbert was born. He got divorced in 1945. A year later, at the University of Washington, he met his second wife, Beverly Ann Stuart, and sold two stories for Modern Romance. He had two children by his second marriage. He never completed college because he only studied what mattered to him.

Peter Andrew Jones illustrated the covers of four of the author's books: The Birthgrave (1975), Volkhavaar (1997), Shadowfire (1978) and Quest for the White Witch (1978). What best illustrates and combines all of Lee's themes and all the worlds PAJ has ever traversed is certainly The Birthgrave, with the spacecraft representing the speculative fiction to which Lee has so devoted his work, the femme fatale hybrid fairy lady who oozes eroticism and the giant skeleton skull, whose helmet is reminiscent of war and horror themes, all amid funeral pyres beneath the stellar sky. If there was someone creative enough to unite worlds so far apart in one of the most beautiful ensembles in full harmony, the PAJ-Lee partnership makes the whole union seem almost ... epiphanic!

Some major subjects of Lee's writing were English, History, and Religion.
After experiencing numerous rejections of her works, her career took off with the 1975 acceptance of her adult fantasy epic The Birthgrave, which allowed Lee to be a full-time writer and quit her sideline jobs. During the 1990s, his books met with a new rejection. However, Internet sales have managed to revive her texts.

Her writing style blended descriptive poetic prose into mythical stories of distant worlds, considered strange, exuberant, vibrant, exotic, erotic, rich, elegant, perverse, and darkly handsome for expert criticism, which is not always easy for the reader, for leaves unanswered questions.
Lee's themes were also very varied: nonconformist interpretations of fairy tales, vampire stories, myths and fantasy genres, feminism, sexuality, homosexuality, Gothic science fiction, loneliness, fear, self-destruction, creativity, homophobia, racism, sexism, love, loss, revenge, eroticism, despair, isolation, social pressure, death and renewal.

In her spare time, she watched Nature and History channels on television, being a big fan of Doctor Who.

"IN THE PRINT ROOM"

Starting a print run of Heroes & Villains Volume 1


"Eyes of Fire"

‘I Prigionieri del Tempo’ (Prisoners of Time). I well remember Peter painting this picture and he greatly enjoyed doing it. It is unusual because it is on canvas textured panel: an occasional experiment PAJ indulged in. Edizioni E. Elle in Trieste commissioned this artwork, then author Joe Dever and Peter connected-up on the Beaver Books’ UK editions with Art Director Dennis Barker, (with whom Peter had worked for years) who worked closely with Peter to revamp UK releases of the ‘Lone Wolf’ books.

RATS! All prisoners of - or in - time, and actually villains of the piece, storming down the narrow stone steps, “eyes of fire” (Peter’s own name for the painting), teeth bared. A sconce flares to one side of the image. Both sides of the narrow stairway are lined with a favourite feature of Peter’s - a stone wall. He has a thing about walls ..... He’s carried the stone wall all along his career path and his recent work for the cover of this ‘Heroes & Villains’ book discloses yet another!

Saint Laurence Church in Church Stretton, viewed from Cunnery Road.


St Laurence's Church, a largely Norman structure, but with Saxon origins, displays a Sheela na gig above the north doorway.

Sheela na gigs are figurative carvings, architectural grotesques found all over Europe on cathedrals, castles, and other buildings.

It is believed that the sheela na gigs were first carved in France and Spain in the 11th century, eventually reaching Britain and Ireland in the 12th century and may have been used to ward off death, evil and demons.

The blog Ski-Ffy brings cover art from several fantasy and science fiction books. Registered since 2005 on Blogger, its first post was in 2007 and his last update so far was known in 2018.

On May 29th, 2017 its author dedicated an exclusive post to a selection of cover art by Peter Andrew Jones, which can be found at https://ski-ffy.blogspot.com/2017/05/peter-jones-sword-sorcery.html. The blogger even opens the section with a quote from Solar Wind (1980), one of the many books PAJ has published about his own art.

In addition to this post, those who access this blog may encounter other PAJ cover artworks in other posts, as the blogger has dedicated several texts to specific authors for whom PAJ has illustrated cover art.

Another great tribute to our artist made by another great art admirer.

"THE VIEW FROM THE STUDIO"

Caer Caradoc.


The Battle of Caer Caradoc was the final battle in Caratacus's resistance to Roman rule. Fought in 50 AD, the Romans defeated the Britons and thus secured the southern areas of the province of Britannia. Caratacus chose a battlefield in hilly country, placing the Britons on the higher ground. Though some say it was actually in Hereford.
(Wikipedia)

Yet, the battle site is not actually known for sure. The Iron Age hill fort on Caer Caradoc in Church Stretton has been connected with the battle due to its name (which translates as the fortress of Caractacus). Yet, some say Legend states that the battle was actually fought at a Celtic Camp in the Malvern Hills.

It's anybody's guess . . . .

HOW NOT TO PAINT AND DRAW"
 (Like anybody else)

 (Ways to make being creative simple, straightforward, & personal)  

SIMPLE DRAWING SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES
(Final Lesson)


COMPLETION

OH, HANG ON, ONE LAST THING . . . . . !

The drawing is complete.

Or is it?

It is always useful to put it aside for a day or two, not look at it, and upon return, cast your eye over it and decide if "it'll do", a phrase I used to use  For a mere hour or so) when crashing Publisher's and Movie producer's deadlines at a ridiculous three o'clock in the morning before heading-off to deliver a piece (while catching-up on sleep in the back of my London Black Cab  driver friend's cab, John) and whilst this project is not faced with such strict restrictions or pressures, nevertheless, a lesson learned in those markets is still useful, which is, in truth, can you ever say "it's finished"?

As a creative person, you'll always ponder "if there is something more I can do" (or undo) and "do I feel comfortable letting go of it" (because you have to, at some point).

Personally, I LOVED, deadlines, because they sharpened the mind and insisted one made those last minute efforts and adjustments in a very focused manner because if not, quite simply, one would be "out of time" and then too late to do anything about it anyway.

And so, one of the reasons I keep very busy with projects is, now I am entirely self-published, it forces me to decide when a piece is "done", because if it didn't, I'd never get to enough follow-on pieces to constitute "a body of work".

Self discipline is a virtue and enables one to be "creatively productive".

Here endeth the lessons!


I hope, sincerely, you learned something of use to you.

SIMPLE DRAWING SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES
(Lesson 18 on drawing)


ADJUSTMENTS & CORRECTIONS

20). As we now move towards finalizing I have added the curved areas to the top of each wing the make it more representative of a fold in the outer top edges of the wings, and, I adjusted the imbalance between the stylised claw to the bottom left of the body and the gap to the right of it by adding an extension to the bottom part of the right hand wing.

Get ready for the final lesson!

REFLECTION & FINESSING

20). Having now completed all the stages of the drawing thus far, it is time to step back, look, reflect, and decide if there are any adjustments or additions before I finalise the work.

As mentioned, I have decided to add a curved area to the top of each wing the make it more representative of a fold in the outer top edges of the wings, and, I am unhappy with the imbalance between the styalised claw to the bottom left of the body and the gap to the right of it.

So . . .  I will want to think on this and remedy this (for the next and final lessons).

SIMPLE DRAWING SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES
(Lesson 16 on drawing)


BALANCING (of mirrored elements)

19). Having rubbed the traced-off left wing down on to the right hand side of the drawing we now move towards completion by working to echo/repeat the main design and textural elements of the left wing.

I've also decided, caused by a fresh view of the wings presented by the traced-down wing, to add an element to the very top of the wing(s), which I think gives a better presentation of the top of the wing folding over the lower/inside area of the wings.

A wonderful thing I find (amongst others) about drawing is that as I work on one it inevitably triggers additional ideas that may be added/included.

TRACING-DOWN (& then working on)

18). Now we've traced-down the image, disposing of the tracing paper, we can set about finalising the entire piece by drawing the details on the right wing of the Dragon.

I've also added a curve to the top of the wing (I decided it needed it and so I will have to add that to the left wing also).

Get ready for lesson 16!

(Lesson 14 on drawing)


FLIPPING (& tracing-down the image on to the drawing - continued)

17). Now, "flip" the tracing paper over, so the penciled side is face down, align the left hand elements with those already drawn at the left side of the Dragon's head. Use a ruler or some other straight edge to ensure the top of the traced wing is level with the one already drawn on the right, and, using either a very hard pencil, or, if you don't have one, a Biro will more than suffice, press hard on the tracing paper to sufficiently mark the paper with pencil lead.

This will mark out the left wing's elements ready for finalising the drawing.

Get ready for lesson 15!
