This young lady alien has gotten herself a summer job giving tours around the Rocky Mountains on Earth. She only gives tours to other aliens though... for a couple of reasons. No humans can understand this alien Julie McCoy due to her dreadful fang lisp and moreover, the insurance for Earthlings is way too high because they are way too tasty...


I am selling 50 signed and numbered prints of this painting. The number I have listed as available on this page is how many are left in the series before it is sold out completely.


The series has been featured on:

and my new set in the same series:

I use (upcycle) thrift store landscape paintings as my backdrops and I "Put a Monster On It".

I know this form of art alteration has been growing in popularity but I like to think that I have a slightly different spin on it....I have a background in theatrical set and costume design so I prefer to think of the original prints as backdrops to be used as an environment for my aliens to interact with and to lend a place for them to create their own adventures...

The listing includes:

-One signed, numbered giclee print on matte paper with archival inks. It has been enlarged from the original size to fit a 5" X 7" frame.

-One 2 dimensional picture frame printed on glossy photo paper. I am including this so you can see how great the picture will look if you get a similar frame. You could use it as the display frame too, if you are so inclined. The Hollywood Regency frame was one of the reasons I was drawn to the print in the first place. I personally think the 2 dimensional format lends an especially classy element to the fine art...

* I have heard some people express concern that I am ruining someone else's art. I make a point of only painting on to prints...I also prefer prints that have been stained or marked so that it is a sure bet that I am rescuing the piece from the landfill rather than defacing any valuable art.

Got this and another of Thyrza's works as a present for my wife's birthday. After a delay happened with the local courier, Thyrza went above and beyond to ensure I had my prints on time and that I was happy. What a wonderful artist and person! My wife was very happy with the end (framed) pieces. Of course they make for great conversation when we have company over. Thanks again Thyrza :)
