Drawings by Jasper Burns
So I’ve been drawing for publication for 33 years now; seems like a good time to publish a volume of collected works. This book contains well over 100 drawings, about half in color and most full-page (8″x10″), ranging from landscapes to meticulous portraits of fossils, bugs, and Roman empresses, to abstracts and fantastical art.
Most of these images have appeared in published form before (a list of 32 publications is included), but some have never been reproduced in color or at this scale. Also, 8 unpublished landscapes of the Sierra Nevada in California and Nevada are included.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I think these pictures speak for themselves. Also, many of them simply defy description. Therefore, I have not included captions or explanations. This is a collection of images that reflect my interests and imagination. Hopefully, there’s something here for everyone.
