An alien invasion in three parts

In February 2015, I doodled a little friend for my big giraffe using a feature of the landscape – Swan Lake – as a key part of the image.

Well, not too long ago, I was poring over a satellite image of Victoria and noticed that the boat slips at Oak Bay Marina look like a skeletal or mechanical hand.

Working outward from that organ (yes – the hand is an organ), I discovered a strange little alien-dude, ET; and then I discovered strange little alien-dude’s companion, (P)ET (thanks, David Bradbury, for the clever acronym); and then I discovered their mothership.

I also discovered a very cool app that let’s you combine multiple Strava activities into a single image. I used it to unite ET and (P)ET with their ship in the image below. It’s called Heatflask. Check it out!
