As seen on TV (Detroit Public Televisions 'Detroit Performs')! This monster from space was created as a special reference to my 'sugar skull' sculpture I created for the Dia de Los Muertos event at the Imperial in Ferndale MI in 2014. You can see both in the video from the show (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9MYCNmT7tE&). This is the 19th painting done for my Detroit Kaiju series.
