You're up early. This was always one of my favorite Tenniel images...after the "drink me" bottle and she's grown out of all proportion to the space she's in.

Oh my! You read my mind(almost). Great features, here!

My Alice has met up with the caterpillar...and the mushroom!!-next installment...

Susan, I'll be scanning in all the art from my Maraja edition(hoping the scanner holds up)...there is an incredible reference to this and will blip it on over when ready...

The chapter for claustrophobics.

This is a great illustration and the tiny (?) window is perfect. Love the wallpaper. (Is the window really that small or is it a photo pasted there from a magazine. I'll enlarge it to see. So how do we get one of these Alices to put in our own choice of location? Do we scan them from books or are you drawing them, Art Sparker? - Jeanne

I like how androgyne she looks all of a sudden...

Its my daughters dream to grow so big she won't fit in the house. She keeps telling me she is getting bigger and bigger every day! She wants to be like Alice.

Love it all - the window, the expression and the signs of ownership of the room.

What a clever ray of light! Alice looks so surly; it makes me laugh.

I took my youngest daughter to Alice's Shop in Oxford yesterday, and we came away with all sorts of things. I've got a pressie for you.

Boy she looks cross! Too much Vimto I'll wager.Great little window and is that another small rabbit below?

Caio Fernandes said...

how did you get the light coming from the window and touching her ..... i really don't know . but it is wonderful .
i liked the layout too.
but the drawing still is the main object to the eyes . very good .

the fox post is a precious view to the eyes !!!

Too many wonderful things!!! I should have learned by now to keep up with commenting on your blog...if I leave it for even a few days it's impossible to leave comments on all I would want to say! Alice continues to be a total delight and the fox's return is just marvelous (and spooky as a tailcoated fox is on my drawing board at present...great minds :)

You continue to recommend great books...I've just looked up "Green Tea" and found free text on the internet, sounds an intriguing tale...hope it can live up to your really nice illustration! Surely knowone took exception to your connecting their art with your marvelous work?! Is the 'tea ape' somewhat like the absinth green fairy I wonder...? Always fun to while away the hours here at the art spark theatre... maybe I should book a box :)

Life makes me feel like this sometimes too ; (

Jeanne- the window frame is cut outand attached, what you see through the window was added in photoshop.

Bee- she is just as surly in the original illustration

Caio - the light is done in photoshop, I confess. Thank you for the comment about the fox.
