Thanks to my loving Mother, the "Alien" series has been near and dear to me my whole life. She saw Alien in the theater, while I was still in her womb. And when I was in the 4th Grade, my Mom kept me home from school one day JUST so I could watch Aliens with her. I seriously felt like the luckiest kid on Earth, as I sat there terrified, watching Hicks, Vasquez, Ripley and the gang go toe-to-toe with the teeming, nasty alien horde!
So today's drawing is in honor of my Mom, and mothers everywhere who take the time to teach their children about the ills of interstellar exploration, space marines and toothy monsters with acid for blood.
