Lot # 21 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Hand-drawn Ron Cobb Nostromo Heli-Jet Concept Sketch

Stock #104303

A hand-drawn Ron Cobb Nostromo heli-jet concept sketch from the production of Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror film Alien. The crew of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation's USCSS Nostromo were awakened from hyper-sleep by a distress signal from a desolate moon.

This sketch by concept artist Cobb depicts the heli-jet on the Nostromo's utility deck, although the heli-jet was ultimately not seen among the other small vehicles aboard the ship. The sketch is rendered in watercolour, ink, and graphite on illustration paper labelled "ALIEN TWO PLACE, LONG RANGE HELI-JET WITH 2 FUSION/HELIUM ENGINES VECTORED FOR VTOL. CAN OPERATE FROM 2 EARTH ATMOSPHERES TO VACUUM" and signed by Cobb. It exhibits some creasing, staining, and pinholes in the corners from use. Dimensions: 30.5 cm x 42 cm (12" x 16 1/2")
