Back in the 1985, before the art Department days I started my Hollywood career as a model maker, We had just finished working on Hunt for Red October, and Solar Crisis, and next was Alien 3, Here are some pictures of the prison complex, I believe this was 1991 and there was no Ron Cobb on this Alien instalment.  all the model makers over at Boss films were quite sad about this so we all decided to gave tribute to the master by putting a big “W” on the side of our buildings. The “W” stands for Weylan Yutani, A fictional company Ron created for the original Alien. The budget was slim for us on Alien 3 and The boss came to us with a rediculously low figure and asked if we could make this model for the price$$$$ We said sure and built the entire table top miniature out of gater board, foam core and big piece of green death, (carving foam). The details were from the model parts bins and everything else we could find,,, There are even a couple of Killer Klown heads hidden amongst the piping.. In the high picture you Have Paul Ozzimo on the right,  Jeff Kalmus in the middle, and myself (with hair) on the left. We had a month to make this in and had a great time building something big and Sci-Fi

below is  a link to the whole Waylen story.

Well it has been a great week sharing all the brilliant work from this very talented artist. To finish up here are some of Ron Cobb’s spacecraft designs from Alien and  a painting of the Space Shuttle atop the 747.  I saw this piece hanging in the art gallery at Cape Canaveral in 1990, and was amazed at his Cobb’s skills as a photo realist artist as well as a great concept illustrator. Thanks again for a great week and I’ll conclude the Jerry Goldsmith tribute next Monday. have a great weekend.
