Alien-A-Day #37—The Aquilari. Also known as the Ancients of Chelonia, Collectors of Time, and The Last Sages of the Wandering, this two-headed tortoise travels the universe in a gigantic ship called the Chelonia, searching for…something. Little is known about the origins of this ancient creature, but some say it may be as old as time itself. But that’s just silly.
Alien-A-Day #36—The Uskog. A mysterious warrior race who have been known to terrorize the galaxy with their acts of piracy. Very little is known about the Uskog though they are rumored to be android. Or cyborg. Or…did I mention very little is known?
Alien-A-Day #35—Vonicians. Through the centuries, the Vonicians discovery and exploration of celestial structures has been unmatched. They set out to explore space like few civilizations before, successfully navigating the turbulent winds of Carina and even piercing the Keyhole Nebula. Some of the finest spacefarers of all time were Vonicians, like Commodore Allora, the Dread Pirate Porco, and the legendary Captain Vitemo.
Alien-A-Day #34—Alien Sketchbook. Here is the first sketchbook drawing of a little alien that became a silent extra in Red’s Planet. he was also featured as Alien-A-Day # 22, Omi’chichi.
Alien-A-Day #33—Bobalunx Sketchbook Studies. Here are some studies of the little blue aliens from Red’s Planet called Bobalunx. The name comes from a word I misheard talking to my 6-year-old daughter.
Alien-A-Day #32—Rhettnlink. Once two distinct beings, these best friends were so inseparable, they had their heads surgically attached to a Nerthkarolinian Squid to become the self styled “Intergalacticnetainer”, Rhettnlink. After producing viral videos and comedy skits on the Intergalacticnet, they now host the popular variety show (and ratings juggernaut) Good Sci-fi-entifical Morning, seen across the Milky Way and parts of Andromeda.
Alien-A-Day #31—The Gorg. Revered and worshipped on seven worlds, the Gorg’s existence has always been considered mythical. Many cultures believe they are harbingers of doom, some believe they will usher in the dawn of a new age, while others think they would look great above the fireplace.
