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.

East Leeds Eagles

The Red Kite Eagles of Harewood House.

Red Kite Eagles of Harewood House over East Leeds 11th March 2012
In the summer of 1999 twenty-one young red kites were released into the wild on the Harewood Estate as part of a reintroduction programme, and now is one of the top British sites to see these stunning birds of prey. Lucky for me I don’t have to travel that far, as they now grace the skies over East Leeds following the road network in search of road kill.

On many occasion they fly over my garden, but I’ve never really got a truly good photo of them, …until today, and I wasn’t even in the garden, but at the local Tesco’s filling the car up with petrol, I’d finished and Wifey was inside paying for the fuel when I noticed the Policewoman opposite staring into the sky, I turned and witness this majestic Red Kite Eagle heading my way, I instantly whipped out the camera from the back seat of the car and started snapping…enjoy the results, as the policewoman did when she wanted to see if I’d got a good shot.
