Namesake - Grown-up Alice and the cats by secondlina Namesake - Grown-up Alice and the cats by secondlina
One of my favorite themes in Namesake, aside from all the fairy tales, is family love. Namesake is full of little families and full of sibling love. Sometimes, it’s love shared by biological siblings like Elaine and Emma. Other times, it’s the love an adoptive family shares. Alice’s adoptive Wonderland family is definitely an odd one, but also a really loving one. I wanted to draw an image of adult Alice with her siblings Wani, Mug and Lug.

I’m still surprised that in all the Wonderland inspired works I read, nobody seemed to think that having a large group of cheshire cats was awesome. Drawing a litter of disappearing, floating cats is the best thing.

This is a theme I'm totally down with in Namesake, especially when you handle moments like this one. It's just so nice to see when so many other stories push family aside or don't even bother at all.

I agree, I absolutely love the idea of many cheshire cats! I'm curious though if there is more than just these three or not?

I love that there is more than one cheshire cat!  I mean... if there IS only one that would make for an interesting story of how he got to be like that, but I like the idea that cheshire cat is a... well... a race... of cats I guess.

 

They are so cute with their different personalities and markings!

If he was unique, then it would be the story of how a cat gained superpowers. :D Which is still pretty awesome.

Really? Well it does sort of make sense...
PFFF maybe Wani should be with her all the time
(Wani is the female cat right?)

Yup, Wani is the female one with the "teardrop"-ish forehead markings.
