No, not the 1950's era spaceplane x-20,

Alien menagerie x.20! Painted from a pencil sketch that's dated 12/01/05. I enjoy going through the stacks of sketches I've saved looking for the next one to paint. The approach I've taken to these characters shifts over time, and I often find things I wouldn't think of drawing the same way today.

This one seems like a jaunty if corpulent fellow.

snowman from outer space

Is September an odd time to be considering snowmen? This is "winter" in alien menagerie. Somewhere in the galaxy it's snowing right now.
