**********************ALL OUR GRAPHICS ARE BASED*****************
***ON SCIENCE, MYTH, WORLD CULTURES OR SPIRITUALITY.****
++++++++**EVERY GRAPHIC HAS A STORY BEHIND IT. **++++++++
The front graphic of this tee is a pair of alien eyes staring out at you. The eye shape is taken from reports of the race of aliens known as the "greys". Grey aliens are only one race of aliens people claim to be visited by but have gained a strong notoriety because of their odd and distinct physical appearance. With the 1987 release of Whitley Schrieber's book and subsequent film, Communion, about his experiences with and abduction by this race, the Greys have become synonymous with the rising awareness of alien presence on this planet.
The Japanese character on the front left of the eyes means respect your elders. The Glyph to the right is the number "3" for three erin cadigan. I used Japanese characters to fit the comic book style, Anime, that was so popular at the time I did this design. The Japanese characters on the back mean: "wake up to reality" and "seek the truth". Alien Comics is a made up series of comics though I did do other designs based on this idea. "The Visitation" intentional gives reference to the arch angel Micheal's visit to Mary.
The alien's right hand is raised in the classic mudra of benediction in both Catholicism and Buddism and his left hand in in the mudra for contact. A mudra is a specific hand position meant to convey a message. Mudras are used in many different religions' icon paintings.
Often aliens visit or abduct the abductees during the night time. Often people claim to be a sleep as the abduction happens and then wake up into a different time and space. On the clock to the right of the women you see the time 3:33. Originally in 1998 I put that time because of my logo being three. In 2009 a true story movie was released based on the events in an Alaskan town. A high number of townies experienced abductions and a female psychologist working there documented their sessions in which the detailed of their experiences. Repeatedly the people claimed to be awoken at 3:33 AM.
Reports vary on the meaning and intent behind the visits from this race of aliens. Many abductees are highly traumatized by their encounters while others search for meaning. It is unclear what these abductions mean or why they are happening. It is my personal belief that we have much to learn from a race of beings so obviously more advanced then out own.
