Who Wants An Alien Girlfriend? (My February 2018 Cover for Metaphorosis Magazine)

Below is my work in progress for the February 2018 cover of Metaphorosis Magazine.  You can see the evolution from drawing to completed painting.  It was a quick turn around of when it was due.  I only had 1 week to finish it.  I wasn't sure if I'd make my deadline.  In the end, I turned it in a day early.

It's a story about a guy from a small beach town who learns his girlfriend was an alien.  When I first heard this description, my mind filled with images of insect heads popping out of 1950's hourglass dresses.  But the girlfriend is far less obvious than that.  She's full of mysteries yet means our hero, the boyfriend, no harm.  In fact, she's quite benign.  You can read the whole story starting in February 2018 at Metaphorosis Magazine.
