Description Oil on canvas. 30' by 24'. September, 2014.I painted this to help me imagine a scene for a novel I was starting to write. We see two aliens on a very long road trip, and theyre looking at some animals, a capybara with squirrel monkeys. I didnt feel like struggling with the human form which is why I went for expressionist zigzag aliens. I like how the guy on the left looks, hes like a cartoon-character tough guy with a whiskery jaw, and the round thing on top of his head might be a derby.
