:wave: Hi! How are you?:wave:

Hi there Tom!

You ever think about making a book about your alien creation process?

Because I, for one, am super curious at how you manage to make such unique looking aliens!

I had not thus far. I am not certain I am much of a how to guy. That being said, I have done some time lapse drawing videos over on YouTube:…

Thanks! I'll have to check that out sometime!

Also, thanks for the quick reply! I admit, your alien designs are spectacular, especially with how you manage to make them all distinctive and unique!

Thank you for taking a look! 🙏😊

Hey there Tom, I had a few questions for you and was also wanting to get your opinion on what a particular character design given the particular scenario would look like.

When you first saw the use of the Ben Wolf design in the 05 show, did you expect a one time episode use alongside other alien designs like the mummy or did you at least expect some minor use in the waning episodes of the show? What are your thoughts or influence with other interpretations of said particular alien designs across other versions of Ben 10.

And last but not least the fun question...

While this was only a single episode, many online were shocked by how popular Gwen and her few seen alien forms in the episode "Gwen 10" were and were saddened that they were not able to see more. So if YOU had a say in her Gwen Wolf alien design or her Gwen Mummy design, how would you go about it? (feel free to either sketch/draw it or give a description as to how you would have done it?)

Thank you and I hope to hear a response from you.

Hi! Did you work on the design for the alien mummy? Because, given that it's one of my favorite childhood creature designs in existence I'd like to congratulate you if you did, and I'd be very intrigued to see the proto-designs if you have them.
