'Conceptual' Design 
It was a long time ago - back then in 1979, but I obviously knew that I was involved in the creation of a sci-fi classic of classically sci-fi proportions.
These pages bring to you - from the vaults - for the first time in the history of the world ever - the secret conceptual designs for ALIEN: Sight Unseen.

They were just done by some 11 year old kid who clearly hadn't the slightest idea of what the film would look like - or even be about! I mean, look at them for god's sake." But no, you'd just be very silly.
