Mars Attacks Heritage - Hairy Fiend

Cards 57 and 58 of 106 sketch cards done for the Mars Attacks Heritage trading card series by Topps.

Another riff on Hairy Fiend, card #42 of the original Mars Attacks cards set.

With a large stack of cards to do in a short period of time I tried something new here. Repeating, yet tweaking, images and playing with grey tones.

Mars Attacks cards first appeared in 1962, conceived and produced by Len Brown, Woody Gelman, Wally Wood, Bob Powell and Norman Saunders.
The Heritage card series is celebrating the 50th anniversary, which is now already reportedly sold out.
