APC Cutaway video… Encore! Encore!



To the world at large, John R. Mullaney is known for producing computer generated and watercolour artist’s impressions & cutaway artworks for the property & publishing industries.

To the universe of ALIEN, John is known for his fabulous illustrations of the ships and technology seen in the movies. If you have seen Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report, you have seen John’s work!

I was checking up on John’s activities at his website this morning, and it sounds like he is very busy working on new wonders! His site is called thetopdraw.com and on it he publishes news about his work, his galleries, his prints, and other art he has created.

Since we have a few folks new to this website, I wanted to re-share this gem: his time-lapse video of the creation of the M577 Armored Personnel Carrier seen in ALIENS.

John provides us with two versions of the video:


Version 1: If you are pressed for time, this is the 4 minute version:



Version 2: This is the one to watch: the extended 13 minute version!


Both versions feature original music by Last Picture Show, of which John is a member.



P. S. John wrote an essay for the ‘Memories of Nostromo’ series. It’ll drop tomorrow. Read for yourself how this guy got hooked on sci-fi!
