anecdote illustration




'ello! Finally I have finished illustrating Dennis' alien story... here's the story, tell me what you think...

One night when I was about 10 years old, I saw my very first TV show on extraterrestrials. It had some of those famous shots of the gray aliens getting an autopsy and I was freaked out by them. After the show was over I went to bed but couldn't sleep because I was so scared thinking aliens were going to come and take me away. At this moment I realized the power of my own imagination. I felt something moving under the sheets by my legs, I tried not to believe it but it was definitely there. I screamed, jumped out of bed and ran to my dad's bedroom. At first I couldn't form coherent words but somehow my dad understood that there was something in my bed. I was ready to see a tiny alien who could control us with its silent and big black eyes. It turned out to be just a baby salamander which my dad grabbed and stepped on. He went back to sleep and left me standing in the middle of my room by myself, still freaked the hell out.
