Well, I went to the sketch group last night and accomplished nothing. We decided not to do a theme and I doodled a bit but mostly sat there all grouchy like. Like I mentioned in my previous post I’ve been in a bit of a drought, creatively speaking. A slump if you will. I haven’t felt like working, I haven’t felt like drawing. When I do sit down to draw I end up staring at the page or scribbling over my efforts and cursing. Not wanting to spoil everyone’s evening, I decided not to join the sketch group for the final leg of the journey. The drinking leg. Grouchy and alcohol don’t mix, kids! So I went home, plopped down on my bed and stared at the ceiling. Apparently, that’s the cure–this whole space adventure popped into my head and I actually felt like writing it down and making some sketches. That is what we have here. Now, looking at the aliens in these sketches I’m struck with the feeling that some of them may be homages to other artist’s creations. By “homage”, of course, I mean rip-offs. Unfortunately, I can’t figure where they may have come. All but one, that is. I’m just not saying which one. So, we’re going to play a little game. If one of these creatures reminds you of something you’ve seen before, please post it in the comments section. Save me the embarrassment of one day being sued.
By the way, the cat is supposed to be a alien cat. Hence, the raccoon shaped tail and overall oddness of it. It talks too. Kind of like The Cat From Outer Space. Doh! That’s all right–I’m not changing it.
