Nothing ever really changes

I had hoped to have more EL TIGRE stuff ready for you to see, but I need to find some time to spruce 'em up a bit before I post them. In their place, here's one more dip into the childhood art bin. Ever notice how you wind up drawing the same things your whole life? Case in point:


A drawing I did of the ALIEN when I was 8 years old. At the time, I was reading a comic book of the movie that had the alien colored wrong, so that's why he's yellow.



Here's a more detailed one from when I was 15. I think I was looking at the original Giger artwork. Kinda lame, like all teenage art.



....and here's one from last year, for something I can't talk about. ;) Shhhhhhhhhh.

Ancient Book of Myth & War Show


So everyone knows about THE ANCIENT BOOK OF MYTH AND WAR Art Show/Book Release at Gallery Nucleus Saturday the 24th, right? Of course you do. See you there.

Always a kick to see the childhood drawings. Only wish i still had some of mine (maybe i do, i'll check again). And yeah, the show sounds awesome. I'll try my best to make it out to that one.

I remember wanting that giant Alien doll where that second mouth actually lunged out. Great drawing! Any "shhhh" predators?

That Alien Queen is too good! I still have a Giger poster on my wall.

Chris Battle said...

Thanks, guys! There will be more EL TIGRE next post, and that's a promise.

Lambey & Mukky- All good things to those who wait.

Serapio- I'm pretty sure my giant Alien doll is in a musty cardboard box somewhere in my parent's basement.

I love childhood art bins. I think I have an Alien somewhere that was done based solely on my dad's description since I was too scared to see the movie. I think it looks like a T-res with an eel coming out of its mouth...

The El Tigre stuff looks fun!
