As you may or may not know, I am a BIG Mars Attacks fan. That’s why I went to a lot of trouble to get everything just right for this print. I even created a unique Martian alphabet for the text! Yep, this print was a total labor of love.

I spent a long time trying to get the perfect yellow paper for this print. I actually had 60 sheets of thick pastel paper cut down, but it still didn’t look quite right; It just felt too clean. I wanted paper with a slightly rough texture, and I certainly found it. The Martian is printed on 60 lb yellow Sun Works Eco Friendly “Construction” style paper. It’s thick and pulpy, so it holds the ink just right.
