I was drawing this on the flight back from Minnesota. Flying makes me nervous so I had to occupy myself with something and not think about the wings coming off and the plane becoming a 900 mph lawn dart. I saw some Mexican money at a restaurant in MN and I loved the lettering, you can see it in the "because I.." part.
This frightening looking creature stands as tall as a human. It scuttles along the ocean floor on it's thin leg stalks. It has an armored exoskeleton to protect itself from larger creatures inhabiting the same body of water as him.
The first ever alien to make it's presence known to human kind is this alien robot. Named Xenobot, it is unknown how or why it is here on Earth. It appeared to a crowd of spectators at the space shuttle launch at cape Canaveral in 1986. According to eye witnesses, it came out of the foliage, it's arms outstretched, making a high pitched buzzing noise from what appeared to be a speaker on it's chest. The crowd, startled and scared, ran in a panic. This in turn seems to have startled the alien robot as he turned and ran into the brush, frightened and still blaring awful noises from his speaker port. To this day the alien robot remains elusive. He has been seen all over the country. Often seen peering from behind trees, keeping his distance from humans fortunate enough to see him. Witnesses say it appears skittish and frightens easily. The smallest movement towards him causes him to run away. They say he stops when he is far enough away, and looks over his shoulder at the witnesses, staring with his one large red eye. Scientists and researchers have speculated that he is a sort of ambassador sent from another planet, to make contact with us. Something must have gone wrong on his trip here, either in orbit or when he entered the atmosphere, as he seemed to be confused when he appeared to those first witnesses.
