Aliens In My Greenhouse by ArtByDrew

*A glow back lights my curtains
With a luminescent green
I look around uncertain
Not quite knowing what I’m seeing

I creep towards my window
Seeking to find out light’s source
Part the curtains keeping head low
While my eyes follow light’s course

I stare out in amazement
As I can’t believe my eyes
I see the pods they’ve sent
Vegetables are their disguise

I scurry to the bedside
To awaken sleeping spouse
’What’s wrong?"she said, and I replied
“Aliens in my greenhouse!”

I thought to phone for help
So I called the National Guard
They replied with laughing yelp
“We’re quite sure it’s only chard!”*

This fractal artwork was inspired while watching the classic sci-fi movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”. I’m talking about the original black and white movie from 1956 with Kevin McCarthy. This artwork is a tribute to one of the best science fiction works to ever hit the silver screen. I first watched this movie as just a young boy, and after all these years and many remakes of the movie, the original is still the best. The artwork puts a little more modern spin on what the alien “pods” may look like.

This was created in Apophysis 3D Hack. The original is 4800 × 4800 pixels at 300 pixels per inch. The gradient was created in Apomap,a gradient editor commonly used with Apopyhsis. This artwork is difficult to see over the internet, so I have included a couple of detail cutaways below to better give a feeling for the artwork.

I am an artist, a photographer, a writer, a musician, a composer, a craftsman, a designer, and a programmer. I have been recognized for various works in all of these areas over the last half century.

    A classic movie filmed a few miles from where I was born, your reference to it certainly brings back memories. Great image and writing here, now I need to run and hide from the body snatchers!

  • Thank you, Cora! …and your right… we gotta hide, as everyone knows they come after us artists first so they aren’t noticed as quickly by society :)
