"Should we take a look inside?" In honor of Alien Day, on April 26th, we're proud to debut one of the new prints being released by Bottleneck Gallery in NYC. In partnership with 20th Century Fox and Acme Archives, Bottleneck is hosting a sold out screening of Alien at Syndicated Bk on Tuesday and releasing artwork (other prints by Laurent Durieux and Chris Skinner). We get to reveal the art designed by Mark Englert for Alien titled "should we take a look inside" - a 12"x36" screenprint with glow-in-the-dark ink. This print is awesome, and the detail on it is incredible. And the good news is that the original version will be a timed release meaning anyone can buy a copy during the 24-hour on sale period opening for Alien Day.
Here's the artwork - directly below is the original version of the Mark Englert Alien print (with glow-in-the-dark ink beneath). The print goes on sale at 12pm ET on April 26th lasting until 1PM ET on April 27th.
Here's the variant version of the Mark Englert Alien print - this one is a numbered, limited edition of 175:
Below are three close-up images of the detail on Englert's print - including the alien hanging onto the ship:
For more updates - follow @BottleneckNYC. Both versions of this print will be sold online on the Bottleneck website, so head over there if you're interested. Specific details on the two prints: 12"x36", 7 colors with glow-in-the-dark ink (on both versions). $50 for the original, $65 for the variant (limited to 175 copies). The screening will start at 10PM on Tuesday evening for Alien Day. In addition to the screening, Bottleneck will be giving away lots of goodies: pins, prints, toys from NECA and also a chance to win Sideshow figurines. Follow Bottleneck for more Alien prints, and check out Mondo for their Alien Day goodies. A celebration of the sci-fi horror franchise, Alien Day taking place on 4/26 is a nod to the moon known as LV-426, where the xenomorphs were first discovered in Ridley Scott's 1979 original movie. Have fun celebrating Alien Day.
