...these are a grouping of Mars Attacks cards featuring giant mutant creatures, that I refer to as "Daytime Terrors" for obvious reasons...

Creepy Martian Creature-fest!
...these are some of the pencil only cards... (at the request of Topps, 2 weeks after the original deadline/turnaround of the 100 kolor cards...

I think some of the above creatures were responsible for getting me recommended
for MONSTERWAX's Legendary Lovecraft series!...(which I am currently working on right now)...the H.P.Lovecraft horror mood will definitely be in full creepy effect on the cards I am creating!...stay posted for sneak previews as I go along!
