Portfolio-Invitations from the 7 Planets

So what would an Invitation from another planet look like?

About Royal Invitations from the 7 Planets

I have always been told that I have an outlandish imagination, so I guess I can’t help myself. When I heard the news about the discovery of 7 new rocky exoplanets in the constellation of Aquarius, only 40 light years away (235 trillion miles) from earth, I had some fun ideas come into my head. Perhaps I watched too many episodes of Star Trek as a kid. I imagined a visual, symbolic language used in a series of invitations to our planet, inviting us for a visit. Using monotype and collage, I put this series together. Creative inspiration was the main point to me, I wanted to create the language of alien symbols. Was I successful? Well, who is to say? Perhaps someday we will know. There is more information on my blog post about this project.  https://kathleenthomaart.com/recent-shows-invitations-7-planets/
