This Clever Comic Reminds Us We Are All the Same
An Artistic Representation of the Dalai Lama’s Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

A Note from the Artist

Normally when creating a comic, I start with a quote and work out a story from there. On the rare occasion, I’ve got the whole story figured out and then find a quote that suits it. This comic is one of those, where the story came to me while I was on holiday in Myanmar. The scenery and attractions I came across (along with all the Buddhist monks that walk the streets) sparked an idea for a story featuring my lil’ Shaolin Monk character. I plotted and storyboarded the whole comic before searching for a suitable Dalai Lama quote to match what I had drawn. The quote was perfect, as it not only matched the story, it was exactly what I was experiencing while traveling and meeting so many new people–we really are all the same under the surface.
