Alien Elegy


An illustration from when I participated in the late-night 2-hour DTM session.
The theme was ‘A song inspired by extraterrestrial beings.’
The illustration depicts a Cockatiel (and a Normal Cockatiel) walking with a runny nose, and they come across an extraterrestrial being who, while inside a UFO, requested a check-up at the Space Medical Clinic because he couldn’t bear to see them suffering.
“Oh! It’s the takoyaki from that time!! 🐙”
The extraterrestrial being intended to thank the Cockatiel, who had previously guided him. However, the song inspired by this illustration conveys the extraterrestrial being’s sadness at only being remembered for the takoyaki.
Feel free to give it a listen. 🛸

Oh my, this Normal Cockatiel! It seems he is munching on the donuts that the octopus bought as souvenirs from Earth 🍩🐥

By the way, here’s what it looked like when the Cockatiel was guiding:

Upon closer examination, it seems that this octopus character appeared quite frequently.
They even did things like playing UFO catchers together and having parties… 🐙🍾🛸
