Like many people last weekend we went to see Tim Burtons latest film, the much anticipated 'Alice in Wonderland'. I didn't have any expectations of what the film would be like as I really didn't mind. I love Alice however it is portrayed. I love the way that the book has been interpretated so differently by Artists and Filmakers over the years. We enjoyed it, but then it's always had a place in my heart. The surreal dreamlike wonderland is an Illustrators heaven. And the white rabbit, well he has been a long standing companion of mine, following me around (or do I follow him?) from college days. He often finds a way of getting into my paintings and often he takes on the form of the white hare.
Etsy shop later today! So if you are interested hop across and see.
I wonder what this young lady would think of the film? This is the real 'Alice' namely Alice Pleasance Liddell
She inspired Lewis Carroll ( Charles Lutwidge Dogson) to write the adventures in Wonderland.
She lives on my dining room wall.

Whatever you are doing this weekend have a wonderful time. But I definitely recommend taking a trip to wonderland!
