felt-tip markers and self-adhesive eyes on paper
October 20, 2007
Griffin set out to create a three-eyed alien but plans changed when Reese added a fourth small eye and one large one. Griffin added another large eye for the sake of symmetry, then drew the alien creature. Aliens are an emerging theme in Griffin's artwork. A rocket ship collaborative installation in his preschool classroom includes a drawing made by him of a similar but less googly alien, with eyestalks.
