Poster Per Diem: Peter Gutierrez’s Alien Movie Poster
It goes without saying that Alien is one of the best horror films ever made. It also goes without saying that Alien is one of the greatest science fiction movies ever put to celluloid. And now, it goes without saying that Peter Gutierrez’s Alien screen print is one of the sweetest looking prints around. The thing that most caught my attention about this artwork was how neatly Peter’s design adopts the film’s aesthetic. There’s a claustrophobic, under-lit quality to the piece that’s one part eye-catching, and two parts absolutely terrifying.
Morphology of Western Pond Turtle (Actinemys), Blanding’s Turtle (Emydoidea), and European Pond Turtle (Emys). These far-flung species are still sometimes considered members of the genus Emys, however molecular phylogeny has cast doubt on whether or not they form a real group and morphology has shown several significant differences. Emydoidea has the most pronounced differences, including elongate neck vertebrae, an elongate skull and large thoracic rib heads.
