Suzi Goes To Acheron


Suzi Goes To Acheron (the planet that the Nostrdamus landed on in the first Alien movie) was suggested by George Brown from London. Well, actually George suggested Roger Corman’s Crab Monsters and a pack of Zombie Strippers but as I pointed out, Suzi has already been ravaged by crabs and I’m still knackered from painting those Harpies let alone a bunch of strippers. However, bullying George into suggesting Alien backfired because this critter took even longer to do than those frikken’ Harpies!
Fans of my work (yep, Steve Yates, Yves from Belgium and some woman in Frinton) will notice a similarity in this design and the Rawhead Rex one. I make no apologies; I love that painting and really wanted to keep it for myself but I’m a greedy bastard so I didn’t.
However, this one is every bit as good as Rex so now I can hang a stupendous Suzi on my own wall. Of course, being a greedy bastard I’d rather flog her for big bucks and look at a snap of her hanging on yours!
