okay to add more to my original response,
I don't have a problem with the context of the text
although I would like to see the piece with just
the visual on it's own, I think the reason why the text in the alien piece might not be working so much is because it isn't very consistent.
the more I look at it, I notice that there are other gaps of space where maybe some text could be added in. I also noticed that the text that is present is kind of being choked out by the space, like it could use a little more wiggle room.
Did you add the writing after you painted the alien or before?
