Two charming friends recently got engaged in a full-on bar-raising romantic shenanigan involving a real white horse, balloons, a bullhorn, a giant “Marry Me?” banner and falling flower petals.
I made them a little cartoon-thing in the style of a game called CCBB (let’s say it stands for Cling Clang Bing Bang), which I didn’t invent but have proudly spread cross-provincially. In this game several stacks of paper are passed around a group who alternate writing and drawing to group-create, or “crowd-source” a little comic. I’ve spent many a long evening playing this with the couple so to honour their happy news I played one more CCBB round solo and made this commemorative comic for them. (Context: they both run/curate a taxidermy museum in their home).
