Illustration Friday: Visitors

Illustration Friday: Visitors
The first thing I thought of when I heard the theme for this week was "Visitors" was the 1983 mini-series "V." And of course the scene where Jane Badler eats the mouse (I thought it was a mouse-turns out it was a gerbil or guinea pig). I remember this scene was very shocking to me at the time. Check out the excellent stop motion animation below.

I'd also forgotten the cool sunglasses and the space-age swastika logo.

In my research on the topic, I found V's creator's website. Lots of great photos there.
I got the title for my illustration, from this poster. The Garp poster dates it nicely:
