2: Petit Trees (sketch)
|Petit Trees (sketch)|
Title text: "Petit" being a reference to Le Petit Prince, which I only thought about halfway through the sketch
Le Petit Prince was a novella written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in 1943, about the titular "little Prince", who lives on an asteroid and visits other inhabited asteroids and eventually the Earth. The book is filled with drawings of the asteroid, the prince, and the travels they make. It is noted how, on occasion, baobab trees can begin to grow on these asteroids, and should they not be immediately rooted, their size will make the asteroid uninhabitable.
