The Interrupted Alien by Pete Janes

You seem to have surprised him.

His environmental suit’s helmet features coral-like structures that appear to be breathing for him. And we can all appreciate the duct tape patch. By all means, view larger. If you’d care to see some images of the work in progress, please subscribe to my facebook page.

I hope you will enjoy the rest of my work here.

“Pete Janes entertains the macro insect crowd with meticulous gouache and watercolor specimen pieces, while his more imaginary illustrations seem to be glimpses into faraway realities.”—noted art critic and Portland bum R. Terialspray

    Surprised him, eh? Well, the feeling is entirely mutual. In fact, he came to our door last night; tried to sell us something, but we had no Universal Translator & couldn’t make out a word he said. He was polite, though, & seemingly a little embarrassed by his duct tape patch. He kept puttiing what passed for a hand over it, & he shuffled his feet some. More great work, Pete. You can see that it sent me into yet another world….

  • Thank you, Cindy, and you know a thing or two about instilling character!
