Just when I think Titan can spoil us no more in 2019, they go ahead and announce another new book to excitement my nerdiness! Announced via Bloody Disgusting, Titan are going to be publishing a pretty interesting new book called Alien: 40 Years, 40 Artists Book!

Alien: 40 Years, 40 Artists” is an artistic tribute to the sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien. 40 artists, filmmakers, and fans have been invited to contribute a piece of original art to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Alien in 2019.

Pieces range from alternative posters to gothic interpretations of key scenes. Sketches, process pieces, and interview text accompany each new and unique nightmare.

In addition to cover artist Dane Hallet—an Alien: Covenant concept artist—the contributors include Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, Sam Hudecki, and Tanya Lapointe; Star Wars concept artist and creature designer Terryl Whitlatch; and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Robert, and Jon Wilcox.

    The fact that it is the first search result when you Google "Xenomorph" certainly doesn't help, I'm sure. But man, like you said, there are so many better designs. Then there's the fact that that design doesn't even make sense outside of the very specific context of the Aliens' creation in Alien: Resurrection. And even then, setting aside the actual quality of the design for a moment, it is just frustratingly sickening seeing the same exact stock promo image used over and over and over again for sixteen years now.

    I wound up caving and checking out some of the preview art from the book, since it is probably going to take a little bit longer for my copy to arrive than I thought (Amazon is telling me the 21st). Those Dane Hallett pieces are gorgeous. :o

    There were 2 in here (don't know names off-hand) who committed the cardinal sin of using the AvP Alien publicity still as reference for the Alien though. So big thumbs down to them.

    God, I hate that still with a burning passion for still being used as reference on everything and anything to this day. :D

    People use that AvP still for tattoos. I truly don't get it considering there's so many other better stills of better designs.

    I only showed 5 interior pieces during the video, but they were ones I singled out because I really liked. Matt Hatton, Jorge Garza, RJ Palmer, Nathan Anderson and Evan Cagle.

    I tabbed out of the video once you started showing off a few of the interior pieces, since I want to hold off and see the interior art once I have the book in my hands, but this has me very excited to finally get this one in my hands. 8)

    Any favorite pieces of yours that I should be on the lookout for once I get mine in?

    Thanks! Yep, that one's mine!

    Obviously did a new piece for the book and can't reveal it yet, but super excited to see the book come together!

    Gosh, I'm in good company on this one. I also contributed a piece, and the caliber of the creative people involved is crazy! Super humbled!
