illustration is art


Alice's Adventures In Wonderland


I did this in year three of my degree; my take on illustrating the old classic. I really enjoyed doing this, seeing all the awesome versions, both previous and contemporary of Alice illustration. I modeled her dress on the dress worn by the lovely Mia Wasikowska in Tim Burtons Alice. As with Burtons Alice, and several contemporary takes on her, my Alice is a young woman rather than a little girl. I hand-lettered the cover type, and was very pleased with it as I suck at typography. The various ‘quotes’ are me letting my unique sense of humor have full rein; I am in awe of Noam Chomsky, but liked the idea of some-one of his towering genius status saying something like this (:
