My inspiration for these pieces comes from a few things. First of all, aliens, UFOs, and extraterrestrials have always fascinated me. It is a subject I find very interesting. When I was growing up my family and I use to take road trips down to Florida and we stop for the night at this place in South Carolina called South of the Border, a Mexican style resort where I would stock up on all this alien merchandise they had in the gift shop. I also did a lot of reading about Area 51.
One of my future projects is going to involve something similar-- it will be more alien creatures but next to each one will be a brief description of what it is about. Kind of like The Care Bears-- there is a message behind each one.
