The Art of Prometheus

Prometheus HR Giger

Is this the handy work of the original and brilliant Alien artist and sculpture HR Giger, Ridley Scott did mention he would be working on the new ‘back to the roots’ Alien movie Prometheus.

Ridley on the subject:

I brought him in, I showed him what we were doing, showed him the story and he liked it a lot. So he’s doing a little bit of work for me. He’s been doing some murals, big murals, which we’ll see in almost one of the first chambers we encounter when we land where we’re gonna go.

It does have all the hallmarks of his handy work, including the slight resemblance to an Alien Queen…all will be revealed on the 8th of June.

What Forces Shape You

Stop the presses, I think I’ve found the greatest Star Wars Art in existence. No, really!!!

These incredibly detailed portraits have been created to promote the opening of the new exhibition Star Wars Identities, . Six digital mosaics which use various pieces of Star Wars iconography to make up the faces of key characters and robots.

Star Wars Artist Geeks, consider the gauntlet well and truly thrown down.

Heron & The Storm

Crane and the Storm over Leeds Sat 17th March 2012

A stunning thunderstorm descended on Leeds yesterday, but something else arrived to escape the impending downpour in the shape of a glorious Heron on top of the neighbours roof, I watched her glide in and land, she then looked out at the approaching weather, ruffled her feathers, as if a shudder had come all over her at the sight.

Luckily I had the camera over my shoulder (as usual) and took these wonderful shots of her and the storm.
