Alice the Brave

Alice is not overly blessed in the sense of humor department, but you can't fault her for courage and determination.

Seth Godin on a wonderful typo today.

If anybody is going to risk a roll of the die it's going to be Alice.

For me, these image will be always connected to Aleph's wonderful words:

"Just a slight touch and the whole world will change.
But of course, you have to dare to touch, and get a little wet, catch the chill
and hand over a little of your warmth!"

Cheers!

Lovely drawing! Such pen structures remind me of Maurice Sendak -- and of 1800 copperplates, of course.

ArtSparker said...

Cláudia- Thanks for reminding me of those beautiful words, and also for what you are saying.

Art said...

Alice looks like she is wondering around a bit herself

This is clever; such a vision.

Congrats on the book too! I might sneak a copy pic and paste into my blog, if that's okay. I now have three published comrades...how lucky am i?

ArtSparker said...

Hi Renee- sure, go ahead.

California Girl said...

That is a great typo. I like this take.

Also, love the "Looking Glass" mirror in previous post & her positioning in this one.

Wonderful light in this one... - sense of humor is a splendid thing to have, but our world´s in need of brave people I guess (more than enough wags around...)

Tom said...

can't beleive how wonderful your drawings are.

Also, that is my new answer to 'what are you doing?'

'just wondering around.'

Cláudia said...

I loved that definition of wondering around:

"Wondering around is the act of inquiring with generous spirit."

ArtSparker said...

Thanks all.

Cláudia - Seth is the best.

Fighting stance!

In a sense, wandering is the physical expression and wondering is the mental expression of the very same thing.

Superlative drawing on this one.

I love here the perfect light of the picture and of your Alice.

I can't think of a better caption for this picture. Between your words and Claudia's, I want to take the book out again.

ArtSparker said...

Jess, Claudia is good with words herself- in this case she's quoting Aleph.
