Octopus Imprints: "The Stowaways"

Collaborative mini-comic (8-panel foldy)

Hannah (Dr H), bink, and I created 3 mini-comics together. 
Each person did her part without consulting the others, then scanned and e-mailed it to the next person.

The Stowaways
1st, I drew the characters
2nd, Hannah drew the (spaceship!) backgrounds 
3rd, bink added title and text



Once these comix are completed, their final form can seem preordained, but when I drew my figures I wasn't thinking of outer space at all. 
As I drew them, I was only thinking of figures parkouring off the different planes of the paper, but most unexpectedly the female US Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Ginsberg came to mind, I guess because I admire how they've managed a kind of social-orientation switcheroo!
