Not sure I get the salty comments above and I don't see the giger tracing, like at all.

Will probably pick one up a reg or var at some point. I hear there might be copies left over for an online release.

His Promtheus is one of my favorites from the franchise

It's a nice take and a welcome addition given the market of Alien prints out there.

Sold out at the show but Grey Matter has an online allocation to drop.

Is it a crime? So many members on this board, I make so few comments, and you single me out. Should I be pleased you're watching me?

Well that melt on the full metal jacket poster was hard to ignore.

Agreed, Giger's brilliant, and Gabz in response to Alien and Prometheus achieved two exceptional works.

Prometheus isn't a bad illo but the title treatment doesn't do it for me.
The image always reminded me of the 10,000 Days artwork.

This Alien print is a nice take on a property that has been done to death. Not sure it's one of my favorite prints for the film but I like it enough to try for it.

Calling out an artist for tracing Wow! Gabz is quite easily a top tier artist & very well established...to imply his take in Alien is traced is extremely shortsighted & lacks any real evidence at all. Get over yourself 😂
