My dad’s birthday is this week, so for his big day I painted him a fun little concept I’ve had playing in my brain for a while. He absolutely loves the green aliens from toy story and the minions from despicable me. He thinks they’re hilarious and enjoys their silliness.
Ever since I saw Despicable Me for the first time, I’ve wondered what would happen if the aliens and the minions met in the same universe. I just keep thinking that if they did meet, they’d be instant best friends and go traipsing around the universe saying, “oooOOOoooh…the claw…banana!” Can’t you just imagine this hilarious green and yellow hoard bouncing around the world, causing mischief and having fun? Anyway, I’ve brainstormed over this funny idea for a while now and decided to finally do something with it for my dad’s birthday…
Thus, this design was born. What if they DID meet? At some place like the Mad Hatter in Dland? I could totally see the aliens trying on minion goggles and minions wearing alien-themed beanie hats. It would be a hilarious, giggle-worthy time.
So, happy birthday, Dad (even though you’re not on tumblr)! I hope your birthday week is marvelous and that you love this little painting I did for you. :) :D All my love!! <3
