Yesterday, I drew an alien on the sidewalk in front of my house and discovered that I really, really like working in pastels. I love the intense colors and how easy it is to create highlights with the lighter chalk.
On Friday night, I watched the movie Alien over at a friend’s house. When I got home, I tried to draw a “cute” alien. I made about eight attempts, but none of them really looked all that cute. I guess it’s hard to make such a horrible, hideous creature endearing.
