I based this on an actual conversation I had with someone in high school. I was the character that was “above ego”. I enjoy poking fun at people who take themselves too seriously, because I was always a kid who took things too seriously and a lot of my sense of humor has developed from learning to make fun of myself for it.
In terms of art style- I wanted it to be kind of quirky and simplistic looking with a few bold colors. I wanted The last panel in this triptych to be a larger panel, because I wanted the two characters to appear smaller, and less significant. I thought this would serve to accentuate the humor.
