An Anatomical Guide To The Xenomorph Print

(sorry about the lame watermark)

This week’s Halloweirdo illustration is an homage to a crazy book called An Anatomical Guide To Monsters. This amazing book showed great cross-sectioned views of the anatomy of the most famous Kaiju monsters of 1967.

You can find several of the images at my friend Molly’s site. My favorite of the bunch is Gamera.

The illustration is my take on the image with what I’d like to call HR Giger’s Alien, but the design has changed quite a bit over the years. I kind of took whatever I liked from a few different sources and went nuts with the guts. Here’s the original sketch. I did a sketch before this with the guts on the same drawing, but it quickly became a mess, so I decided to draw the alien and the guts on a separates sheet of paper. You can kinda see where I drew the alien’s legs to resemble the original Giger design, but I just couldn’t commit. The dog legs are way cooler. It gives the Alien more of an insect vibe.

The terribly translated Japanese text is courtesy of Google translator. If you buy this as a print I’ll email you the original text in English. It’s pretty funny, if I do say so myself.

  1. An Anatomical Guide to Monsters is probably one of my favorite books of all time. I do not presently own a copy, but I am a librarian that doesn’t generally play favorites, and a huge fan of Takashi Murakami who also was artistically influenced by that book.

    This print and that fabulous Christmas card of your grandfather’s are rapidly making you the best person on the internet. In my opinion.
