Alice in Wonderland/Strange Welcome

The Queen's Fish Footman hands the invitation to the croquet game to the Dutchess's Frog Footman. When Alice knocks on the door, she is advised by the Frog Footman "There's no sort of use in knocking...I'm on the same side of the door you are [and] they're making such a noise inside, noone could possibly hear you." It's easy to imagine Alan Rickman's sonorous tones issuing from the bewigged frog.

these are my favorite two characters from Alice and I love these guys with the lovely welcome invite. This is extra special indeed!

Nice word: bewigged... (in German: perücketragend, brrr...)

Love the details like the dramatic lighting and the sealing wax. I used to LOVE sealing wax way back in Junior High!

I love the poses and expressions on these two.

Your reference to Rickman sent me to youtube for a preview of Tim Burton's version. I looks interesting but the power of words and drawings still works the most magic for me.

cheers, Susan.

All the above. :)

Mum- I didn't know he actually had been cast in that part. It;s almost enough to make me want to see the Tim Burton film, which looks sort of tediously decadent.

I love this. I love all the Tenniells. I also like Arthur Rackham's work; very similar.
