Thedus patch sketches for the ASH project.


I sketched these two drafts of “Thedus patches” for Michael Scudieri’s ASH project artwork solicitation.

The first I call “Solomons Circuit”. It is a circular riff on the classic Nostromo patch with a little ALIENS crew dossier mixed in.

The second is titled, “Thedus Mining Station”. It began as an inverted Nostromo patch and I just winged it from there, trying to convey the mineral treasures of mysterious Thedus.

This was fun and is about the limit of my artistic ability, but doing it while watching ‘Fortitude‘ on Amazon was a good inspiration. Thanks to Michael for the chance to do these.  Why not try your hand at it too?


What’s that you say?  You haven’t heard about ASH – A Fan Fiction Comic?

Well, let me remedy that right here and now.


Michael describes his project as a short graphic novel focused on Ash and the days leading up to his assignment on the Nostromo.

Here’s the tagline from the project’s Facebook Page:

The iconic, shadowy, artificial person responsible for the doom of Nostromo. Never before have Ash’s motives or origins been declassified… until now…


The artwork posted on his project Page captures the movie’s vibe quite nicely!

Michael has also opened a thread at, where you can get more details about the project and offer your constructive input.
