Another alien

Wordplay AustralianI have Darren from Just watching the wheel go round to thank for coming up with the wordplay idea for Australien.  Being Australian and a lover of all things alien, I couldn’t help but draw this character. Thought he might have a flying thong spaceship to get around in too… but that’s another cartoon.

    We like Australien! Is it a Bruce or a Sheila?
    Looks like he/she is standing on the Red Centre??

    Now, that is what I call original and look at those different shapes and sizes of “mouth pieces” revolving around the Australien. Good one, Marti!

    Ha,ha.
    Love it.
    And just in time for an Aussie World Cup invasion of Rio,too .
    Or maybe that should be an Out of this World Cup ?-)

    “Cartoons about Life, the Universe and Everything else in-between”.
    If you ever draw him in a football jersey,the number would have to be 42,surely ?-)

      Cool, not only the answer but a primary pseudoperfect number too.
      PS. My daughter numbered her basketball top 42. A whole new generation of Douglas fans are born!

    I saw James Reyne from “Australian Crawl” play the local winery up here in Brizzy last year (and I love the guy and his songs,but…) I thought it would be funny if The Australien’s favourite band was “Australien Drawl” with their lyrics sounding totally alien to anyone but the Australiens themselves.-)
    I guess it all just comes down to Semantics really…or trousers .-)

      Aussie crawl was one of the first CDs I bought (best of). I played it all the time back then and used to bemuse the pronunciation. I lent it to a friend and it got stuck in the CD player, never to be seen again

        I like the Aussie joker (jester) type look the alien has too,I think it sums up the Aussie spirit,as I think all Aussies have a bit of that joker spirit in them.I know I have.
        You’ve nailed it with this character,I think.

        ‘I think’ ?….. Time will tell 🙂
