Grand Rapids, Michigan-based art director and illustrator Ryan Brinkerhoff of Bandito Design Co. has created Know your enemy: Xenomorph, an art print inspired by James Cameron‘s classic sci-fi action horror film Aliens. Brinkerhoff designed his piece for the Crazy 4 Cult 8 art show that took place at Gallery1988 (West) in Los Angeles last year. He goes into further detail about his design process on his art blog. Prints are available to purchase online from the Bandito Design Co. shop.
The design process started with loose sketches. I wanted the design to fit in with the 80s vision of the future, so that meant 45 degree angles! Notched out corners on everything! The content I decided to include consisted of weapons, xeno life-cycle, and xeno physiology. This poster is intended to resemble something that Weyland-Yutani would pass out to the Colonial Marines as preparation for their mission. After all, it was a little more to handle than your average bug hunt.
