Illustrated Aliens

This is a fantastic and ambitious project by Illustrator/Animator Andy Martin. I just can't believe how much thought and effort he has put into this.

Every day on his blog Illustrated Aliens, Andy uploads a new character illustration that will inhabit a planet. At the end of each month he releases an animation about the planet that involves the characters he has designed, and a print of the planet and characters. Each animation has it's own theme and message that reflects the characters design.

An incredible amount of thought has gone into the characters and their personalities, along with the look of the planets themselves. There are 4 so far, and you can get a peek of May's characters if you head over to his blog - I'm excited to see the other 8!
