Not sure how the idea came about, but this is effectively Alfie’s first appearance.

I needed a colour that would pop against the grey backgrounds that I was using. I also remember that after I drew him I realised that the little guy was an organic being and so would need an air bubble to breathe through while on the moon…please don’t argue with my logic, it’s fragile.

This is also the only time that Alfie would be drawn this small. All subsequent drawings have him coming to Corgan’s shoulder.
