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.
