It’s customary for alien abduction images to feature a spaceship and a tractor beam of sorts, but for this one I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to depict the source of the beam as a ball of light, alluding to the idea there was something celestial about what is occurring here.

The image was produced using soft pastels; hours of blending and shading with the intention to capture the mystery of the event that’s unfolding.
