I had a hard time coming up with a spooky thing that I can tie into the Radio prompt. After thinking of multiple horror movie and spooky character scenes where I can drop a radio in, I decided to make it the star of the drawing. So I used one of the most famous radio broadcasts in history, The War of the Worlds, as the concept.

I designed an alien craft with long tentacle-like legs with a head that resembles an old-timey radio. My fascination with tentacles here was probably an aftershock of drawing Cthulu.

I used a bunch of text to mimic old ad posters with a lot of drama and shouting. I probably should have given more effort in designing the text. I didn’t want to overdo it, so I ended up not doing enough.

I liked using white lines over a dark background, though, so I went back to this well several more times in the series.

Can you imagine living in a time when a radio drama about an alien invasion would sound so real to the general public that it would cause widespread panic? For someone who thought The Blair Witch Project was legit real, I probably would have lost my mind.

The word “Radio” is written on the radio and at this point, I think I was already getting tired of incorporating the prompt into the art.

Let me know what you think about this sensational invader from outer space by leaving a comment below! Also, I shared my Inktober 2020 entries on Instagram. Follow if you fancy.
