The Illustrated Aliens art project involves the creation of an alien a day by Andy Martin, a freelance animation director hailing from Sheffield, England, and now based in London. A fun and admirable undertaking, the Illustrated Aliens project hones his artistic abilities in a way that only pure creativity and discipline can. He reveals, "Over the past couple of years, I found I was working more and more on the computer, so I set myself a daily character design project."

Staying away from the traditional idea of little green men or even more gruesome Hollywood rendering, the Illustrated Aliens project appears to riff off existing Earth animals. By adding multiple eyes and limbs, the results are quite extraordinary. Martin even concentrates on a single race each month. Stats for Inhabited Planet Art Projects Trending: Older & Chilly
