A black-and-white homage to Alice in Wonderland done for my Illustration studio class. I wanted to make a muddled journey -- difficult to navigate and from the perspective relative to Alice. Alice as she is (in identity) is unknown. This was an attempt to focus more upon the psychological journey without strictly refrencing previous images and only the accompanying text by Lewis Carroll. My inspiration came from researching the amazon jungle; a world that crawls with life forms easily overlooked. The python which writhes underwater may seem nothing but a overgrown root until investigated further -- one may not know what they are exactly looking at so that the danger and intrigue is inescapable. The strange camoflage and patterns relect an alien way of life among these animals and plants... my hope was to deliver Alice in a new way with a flair not meant to be strictly disturbing/gothic/ or victorian. I hope you will appreciate it.
