The Kid Should See This

Andy Martin’s Illustrated Aliens: Planet One

Animation Director Andy Martin has been creating an alien a day at his Tumblr, Illustrated Aliens, and then uses those illustrations to help compose a monthly animated short about what their planet is like. Above, his January 2013 planet, Planet One, where the musical inhabitants get together and get a bit more than they bargained for. 

You can find them all here on Vimeo or at AndyMartin.info.

There are a few more creatures in the archives. Or you can make up your own… what happens on your planets and what do your aliens look like? We’d like to see… Tweet your drawings to us.
