Galactic Garbage Disposal

This one is based on a fictitious video game for a kids book I am illustrating, The idea for the game in the book is a cute little alien that helps clean up the environment. Then I thought aliens can’t all be benevolent scientists… who cleans up after the benevolent scientists… Garbage Men…Well Garbage Aliens. I don’t like smoking at all, but it adds a lot to the picture.

This E.T. is a working class guy, and enjoys the simple things, like a smoke after his shift, or the occasional probing.

This is the quick sketch that inspired the picture above…It’s a bit more cutesy than my usual stuff.

    I really like the idea about the working class stiffs who do all real work in the shadows behind the aliens who declare that they “come in peace.”
