Alien-Inspired Art

I think it makes sense for an artist to have some kind of schtick to differentiate themselves from the crowd. And Lloyd Canning's schtick is that he says his paintings are inspired by images that extraterrestrials project into his brain. According to him, this image projection began after the aliens first abducted him in 2005. The Mirror has more details. Also check out Canning's website.

He reminds me of Flora Marian Spore, the 1920s artist who claimed her paintings were inspired by ghosts. (See Paul's post from back in 2012.)

Jump Jump the Christmas Elf


Seriously, Jump Jump looks like a mean, vicious badass to me.

You can listen to Jump Jump's Old Time Radio adventures here.

And if you have a spare $200.00, you can own your own Jump Jump doll.

Follies of the Madmen #211


Yes, aliens probably have never had a cup of cocoa until they visit Earth; and if individuals of their kind live for hundreds of years, that would indeed be a very long time to go without cocoa.

But you know what? Aliens, cocoa...? Forget it! I still don't get the connection, no matter how hard I try.
