Paul the artist
I currently live and work in East Yorkshire in the UK. I have been drawing and painting for about as long as I can remember. My early inspirations include the original Star Wars trilogy, Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers and many other 80’s Sci-Fi shows. I loved drawing characters and scenes from these films/shows when I was a boy and this passion for Sci-Fi and art has continued throughout my life. This is the reason for the website scifiartist.com to share my passions and artwork with the world.
scifiartist.com was established in March 2000 and continues to be my creative window to the world.
I paint using most traditional methods, my favourite to use is oil paint though I also love to use acrylics and watercolours. I also paint digitally using a graphics tablet.
My work has been published in books, board games and trading card games.
If you would like to work with me on a creative project then please contact me.
Movies I love include Star Wars, Blade Runner, Terminator, Serenity, Matrix, Total Recall, Predator (You can’t beat a classic Arnie film!). I’ll give anything post apocalyptic a go 😀 Non Sci-Fi favourites include Fight Club, Bourne trilogy, Battle Royale, The talented Mr Ripley.
TV faves are Buffy, Angel, Firefly (Pretty much anything from Joss Whedon), Lexx, Chuck, Early X-Files, all the various Treks. Webseries The Guild, Dr Horrible.
Fave author is Phillip Kindred Dick.
Games – Deus Ex, Knights of the old republic, Mass Effect (Bioware are the best!) Fallout 3, Trials HD, Jedi Outcast, Need for speed most wanted, Starfox, Super Metroid, Super Star Wars, Donkey Kong Country, Mario Kart from the snes days!
I have probably drawn or painted something related to all of the above, though not everything makes it onto this site. This is just a glimpse into the world of artist Paul Burrow. To learn more, why not join me on the many social networking sites I am a member of.
