Peter Andrew Jones (website) is a contemporary British artist and illustrator
born into the relative poverty of post-war Britain in Islington, North London
In 1973, during the second year of his graphic design course at St. Martins, a
college friend, David Case (who later went on to become head of design at
the Financial Times) was reading a Panther Books paperback edition of
science fiction author EE “Doc” Smith’s “Triplanetary”. David suggested to
Peter, “Read it, it’ll blow your mind”. Peter bought a copy and later, during a
regular session with his tutor, visiting lecturer and illustrator Fritz Wagner,
the latter co-incidentally suggested that, because of Peter’s “highly
developed skill of rendering realistic imagery” he might consider painting
things that don’t actually exist, as in science fiction stories. (Bio)
