I intended something else for this, but the black pastel took over and changed the shape of the head… it suddenly looked alien, instead of human. Then I started to question if all my heads looked alien. This wasn’t so much self-doubt as it was fascination. I have a belief that we often draw from a collective imagination. What if there is something buried deep in the subconscious that reveals our true origins? What if we were the aliens?

I chose to invert the colours and make the figure (Caucasian) skin colour, then make the outside an alien green. Ok, “little green men” always seemed more enjoyable / less frightening than “little grey men”. So I picked a bright green to add a little rockabilly tinge to the whole composition.

Dimension: 9″ (23cm) x 12″ (30cm)
