“We Three” (#321: Project 365 Sketches)
2013, Sun 17 Nov. I was reading a 2008 “Myspace Darkhorse Presents” compilation of comics, and there was an art panel by Chris Grine (‘Chickenhare’) of a silhouette of three cartoon characters. I wanted to try a sketch along that style; reminded me of some comic panels in Calvin and Hobbes too — I suppose there’s a similarity in treatment. The three cartoon characters were originally a rabbit, a monkey and a girl with tiny horns. In my sketch, I imagined it was about three aliens trying to escape human detection on a dark moonlit night. Kinda like Disney’s 1963 “The incredible Journey”, but with aliens. Oh, if you have read Grant Morrison’s “We3”, you’ll notice I borrowed the title idea from that too. My homage to that superbly written story.
