9 aliens

I’m excited to announce that I’ve printed a small quantity of a zine I’m calling “9 Aliens”, which collects together the pen and ink drawings that I made for ‘Inktober’ 2016. The printing is in black and white with a color cover and introduction by myself. “9 Aliens” is 5.5 x 7 inches printed on a heavy stock. The cost is a flat $6 for purchases in the USA and Canada, and $7 for all other International orders. Shipping is included, and will be mailed to you first class in a manila envelope.

inked alien #1


As a teenager in the mid-seventies my artistic ambitions were initially directed towards comics and fanzines. In October 2016 I decided to try my hand at drawing in ink again. It was challenging but fun to dip into this media again. This was the first off my drawing board.

x.41


acrylic on Fabriano 300 watercolor paper 8" x 10"

I found the inspiration for X.41 in an ink doodle on a post it note. A fairly straightforward redraft was the basis for my final painting. The color palette is a purposeful homage to the Oms from the film FANTASTIC PLANET.

x.40


acrylic on Fabriano 300 watercolor paper 8" x 10"

Extract 40 is a revisit of an idea from some years ago - when I made some digital studies to get a feel for my alien menagerie as paintings. I’m happy with the subtle evolution it’s taken.
