Concept Art from filmmaker  Alejandro Jodorowsky’s abandoned adaptation of Frank Herbert’s political, mythological  science-fiction fantasy novel, “DUNE” in the early-mid 1970s.

A number of notable artist’s, each with their own unique, varyingly popular style, were assembled to work on the bizarre vision of the project, each assigned a different world or different technologies to design.

Primary artists attached to this first attempt at making “DUNE” include those responsible for the work featured above….

H.R. Giger – – the corrupt, gluttonous and sadistic Harkonnen corporate  family and their holdings as well as the monstrous sandworts of the titular desert planet

Ron Cobb – – the orni’thopters used for air transport as well as other highly  engineered sets and props

Chris Foss – – various spacecraft and architecture 

Jean Giraud, or “Moebius” – – characters and costumes

(After the DUNE film folded, apparently  before a single shot was filmed, all 4 artists would work on Ridley Scott’s 1979 heavily designed science-fiction/ horror masterpiece, “A L I E N.”
