When I was given the opportunity to start designing a collection for HOT TOPIC, I was lucky enough to be able to get to work on a number of different concepts (too be released at later dates!). But 'All American Alien', albeit set in an alternate universe where mid-century America and our friends in galaxies far, far away collide, somehow felt the most timely. In a Mad Men + X-Files mashup of sorts, my idea was to explore the themes of technology, family, masculinity, and mid-century Americana. You know, "the good old days". It's a little weird, a little snarky, and lot's of fun.
