More About John Burns & Helen Burns
Leslie Alfred Joseph Lilley Les Lilley was born in Dartford, Kent 29 November 1924 and died in London 18 October 1998. Lilley was admired and respected within the realm of newspaper and comic strip art, not only for his work as a scriptwriter of literally thousands of strip cartoons and gags, but as a man who spent many years of his life endeavoring to promote the Cartoonists' Club of Great Britain. Not only did he initiate the Club and chair it efficiently for many years, he became President of the Federation of European Cartoonists' Organizations, a thriving multi-cultural body representing humorous artists of many nationalities. Noted strips included "Jane," "Tiffany Jones," "Scarth" and our very own "The Seekers." As Lilley wrote of himself in the 1993 edition of the Cartoonists' Club Handbook, "Hopes to write the definitive novel, occasionally draws a cartoon, and regularly draws his old age pension." John M. Burns john Burns initial work was as an illustrator for Junior Express and School Friend. During the 1960s, Burns worked on TV Century 21 and its sister magazines, including the Space Family Robinson series in "Lady Penelope." For a while he drew daily comics strips for newspapers The Daily Sketch, The Daily Mirror and The Sun, including The Seekers, Danielle and, for a period succeeding Enrique Romero during 1978-79, Modesty Blaise. He moved on to illustrate TV tie-in strips for now-defunct title Look-in, always scripted by Angus P. Allan, Burns was already well known by the start of the 1980s. He also worked on the title story for Countdown. It was when he made the crossover to 2000 AD, along with fellow Look-in alumni Jim Baikie and Arthur Ranson, that his position in British comics was cemented. Burns began by working on Judge Dredd, a strip to which he continues to contribute to this day. By his own admission (in a 2004 interview with David Bishop in the Judge Dredd Megazine), Burns does not enjoy drawing science fiction strips, and the look of Judge Dredd is one that he finds particularly unpleasant to draw. In 2007, Burns began working on the Nikolai Dante strip. He has also co-created (with Robbie Morrison) a contemporary adventure strip, The Bendatti Vendetta, for the Megazine, this is unique for the title in having no science fiction or fantasy elements at all. Burns is still very active as a painterly type of illustrator today.
John Burns currently resides in Hyattsville Hyattsville.
Reviews - What do customers think about What Dads Need to Know About Daughters/What Moms Need to Know About Sons?
Highly recommended. Jul 9, 2007
Written by co-pastors and proud parents John and Helen Burns, What Dads Need to Know about Daughters, What Moms Need to Know About Sons is a simple, sensible guide to raising children that pays especial attention to what children need to have and learn from their opposite-gender parent. John Burns carefully explains what mothers need to know about their sons, and Helen Burns gives the inside scoop on what fathers need to know about their daughters. Though written from a Christian perspective, What Dads Need to Know about Daughters, What Moms Need to Know About Sons is overall a solid and sensible parenting guide for readers of all backgrounds. "It's good for a dad to encourage his daughter to use her talents and develop her skills to the best of her ability. But many parents have a tendency to only notice what is lacking in their children's performances and point out those deficiencies. A dad, with his natural sense of competitiveness, can be especially critical of a daughter's performance in competition. In a little girl's mind, this criticism often translates into a sense of inadequacy and an unhealthy pressure to become 'what Daddy wants,' rather than the unique and special woman God intends her to be." Highly recommended.
