COCKPIT

The artist who brought you the dark world of Alien is dead at 74.

I’ve enjoyed his nightmares for over 30 years.

Bummer.

I really liked his work. Mechanical, beautiful and erie. Michelangelo with rivets…layers of pumps, valves and access panels flowing everywhere like the robes of the Pieta. I clearly see a Mechanized had of "god" reaching to the face of "adam" in this one...

I’ve always liked that view of “the future”…not so clean and streamlined but textural and complex. Even if you couldn’t imagine what it was, you could see someone had BUILT it, that it had a purpose. It was the imagined purpose in the images that drew me to his work.

Great Stuff.
