Recently I re-discovered some archived artworks that weren't available on the Mr. Upside webshop yet. This article describes the sixth artwork ('Aliens Night Out') as part of a series of eight blogposts on the new paintings and illustrations.
6. Illustration 'Aliens Night Out'
When I first started with making 'art' and illustrations with the idea to sell them, I liked doodling. As you maybe can see in the earlier works like 'Jungle' and 'Space' and even in the more structured 'City Madness' piece, I started with one long line. Randomly placed somewhere in the middle of the paper. From there I started drawing all kinds of objects and stuff without too much thinking of it. This process depends on enough speed because when you slow down and start thinking too much, the elements will look forced.
The same applies to this illustration 'Aliens Night Out'. Just like with many of my other artworks, I didn't think a name untill the end, when the painting was finished. And 'Aliens Night Out' shows some weird creatures, a city, stars, bright lights and a speakerbox. Hence the name.
The illustration is made with pink and blue Posca acrylic paint markers on a plain piece of cardboard.
