Character-a-Day: Gremlins!

Today's character is actually two of 'em: Gremlins!  I wanted to hearken back to their roots as mechanical mischief makers in the WWII Pacific theater, so their flat horn crests and long flappy ears are meant to evoke aviator cap flaps and goggles.

My favorite joke ever on 3rd Rock from the Sun was when William Shatner guest-starred as an alien.  John Lithgow asked him how his flight was, and Shatner replied "Terrible!  There was a creature on the wing, and no one would believe me!"  John Lithgow replied "The same thing happened to me!"  The joke being that Lithgow reprised Shatner's role as the Gremlin-glimpsing passenger in the movie remake of "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet."

The original art for this one is available for sale.  8.5x11," ink on 80# stock, shipped the Tuesday after purchase.  First come, first serve.  SOLD!
