So I’ve reached the end of the Illustrated Aliens Project. Over 16000 people have followed the blog which is beyond my expectations at the start of the project last January. I hope you have enjoyed my animated planetary adventure.

I have put all The Planets together (as well as some additional bits of animation) to create a full animated short that I am sending to animation festivals this year. Once it has done the rounds I’ll put it online
