Alien Day 4-26-2016

 I Found out this morning it is officially Alien Day!! Its the 30th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s quintessential, game-changing sci-fi film Alien! In the film, the alien xenomorph is found on planet LV-426, and today is April 26th, (hence 426.)! Apparently a bunch of fans diced to make this the Alien film franchise’s equivalent of Star War’s May the 4th. 

I remember my dad renting the original and the part I saw sent me running out of the living room; ironically, it was not the chest burster, but the part with the acid blood shooting out of the face hugger.  

So here’s a quick, mixed, pencil, pen and digital tribute to the film and it’s iconic monster.
