As iconic today as he was in his first appearance in movie in 1980, this character is
known for his unusual alien form, deceptively feeble appearance, and funny way of
talking. It is these characteristics and more that make him unforgettable in the artist’s
opinion and he notes that his character reminds him of ‘good times sitting too close to
the television’.

Perfectly capturing the character’s silhouette and aura whilst remaining obscured, this
simple yet impactful artwork by Whatshisname reflects his aim of conveying “our
childhood heroes [reaching] out to us with an extended hand and saying, ‘Hello, I’m still
here, do you remember me?’ or if those are fading memories, they are saying goodbye.
