Petit Trees (sketch)
"Petit" being a reference to Le Petit Prince, which I only thought about halfway through the sketch
Title text: "Petit" being a reference to Le Petit Prince, which I only thought about halfway through the sketch

Explanation

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. The scale of the asteroid is such that, if two large trees grew on it, it would look a lot like this sketch.

Transcript

[Two trees are growing on opposite sides of a sphere.]
