H.R. Giger’s Original Concept Art For ‘Alien’

March 14, 2017 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Art, Movies |

It’s hard to imagine what the Alien movies would look like without the singular vision of Swiss artist H.R. Giger. But before Giger was hired on to design the film’s monsters and worlds in the image of his own Freudian, biomechanical nightmares, Alien director Ridley Scott and screenwriter Dan O’Bannon were struggling to imagine what their extraterrestrial horrorshow would actually look like

In July of 1977, Swiss artist H. R. Giger received an unexpected call from Dan O’Bannon, a Hollywood screenwriter who was very keen for Giger to help bring his latest screenplay, Alien, to life by way of some concept art. Days later, O’Bannon explained further in a letter that contained this list of things to be designed—a temple, the egg, the Facehugger, the Chestbiurster, and the “terrifically dangerous” Alien itself. As we now know, Giger took the commission on and became a vital member of the crew. Three years later, he and his team won an Academy Award for Best Achievement for Visual Effects for their incredible work.

The famous British artist Banksy is back with a brand new project called “The Walled Off Hotel,” and people can literally sleep inside this work of art. Located in Bethlehem, Palestine it offers the ‘worst view in the world’ with windows overlooking the controversial wall that separates the West Bank from Israel.

From the budget room, outfitted with surplus items from an Israeli military barracks, to the presidential suite with a plunge bath, a roof garden, home cinema, and other lavish features, this hotel (former pottery workshop) will officially open on March 11, with beds starting from $30/night.

Banksy and his team have spent 14 months establishing the hotel and decorating it with murals, paintings, and various installations. “[It’s] a three-storey cure for fanaticism, with limited car parking,” he said

Awesome Illustrations Of What A ‘Star Wars’ vs ‘Aliens’ Crossover Could Look Like

January 25, 2017 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Art |

Spanish artist Guillem H. Poniluppi has created a series imagining what would happen if Darth Vader and his 501st legion of Stormtroopers went up against the Queen Alien and her Xenomorphs. Spoiler: it’s pretty epic.

The illustrations depict various battles – all bloody and brutal – pitting iconic science fiction characters against each other. 

“The brave soldiers of the 501st Legion: Vader’s Fist, the pride of the Empire, was fighting in the remote planet LV-426 against the Space Cockroaches,” wrote Guillem.

“Every soldier from the 501 is braver than ten of those abominable creatures. But the beasts look like they are not giving up.”
