Watch Out for Earthlings!

Hey guys. Here's a cover illustration for a book pitch I'm working on at the moment. I'd love to hear any comments/criticisms you have, particularly on colour and composition.

I've had two big-ish published kids books, and a number of small spot illustrating gigs, although I still don't feel confident enough to be picking my jobs. I've j...
