It's a Wonderland Kinda Day


I love Alice in Wonderland! I love everything about it!!!
The story, characters and all. There are so many artist
who have illustrated these beautiful characters. I would love to
illustrate," Through the Looking Glass" one day. What story would
you like to illustrate??? Is it " Red Riding Hood", or maybe
"The Boy Who Cried Wolf"??? Whatever the story, be it your own
or one of the classsics! Give it a try and give yourself permission to
explore. You never know what you might come up with.
Have a Wonderland Kinda day!!!

Another beautiful picture. I think, given the opportunity, I would love to illustrate "The 5 Chinese Brothers." This was one of my all time favorite children's books.

Have a great day, my dear.

I love how you've done Alice and the white rabbit. They have some of the iconic parts of the characters and some distict features (Alice as a brunette!) But I really love the rabbit's costume. Excellent!

Senta said...

Hmmm there are so many that would be totally fun to illustrate...I think maybe I would like to do anything with princesses.

Hey I have missed you sooo much,I am a bad bad blogger lately! I realized I have been having withdrawals from your fabulous artwork so I need to get back on schedule :) How cool that you were in NC too, it was so hard to come back to the desert after those luscious trees! Keep in touch, k?

Hi Vanessa! I was just thinking the same thing today! We watched Australia last night, and I love how the director incorporated the Wizard of Oz into the theme. I was thinking how fun it would be to illustrate a classic. I haven't quite decided which would I would like to do, but I think it is a great idea. Love the illo!

Owl Eng said...

I love your style!! 'Alice in Wonderland' has been one of my favourite stories since young. You did give it a new modern touch!

Alice looks charming and the overall blue is nice. Natalie and her friends below have the makings of a girl band :)

Bella Sinclair said...

YAAA! This is fantastic! I absolutely adore Alice in Wonderland. The classic book illustrations are on my dinner plates, for cryin' out loud! But your Alice -- she's a lot more streetwise and confident, don'tcha think? She's a very cooool Alice, hanging out with her very coool rabbit friend. (Nice threads, dude!)

What would I like to illustrate? Well, I'd have to start off easy, like maybe Shel Silverstein's Missing Piece. Hahaha!

Have a wonderland day, Miss V!

Lisa M Griffin said...

Fantastic! And yes, Alice in Wonderland is just a visual amusement park of ideas! Myself, I have always wanted to illustrate Beauty and the Beast or The Nutcracker.
Have a great weekend!

tanaudel said...

I think it's the vintage cookbook connection (your pictures just remind me of the 50s and 60s and my mother's cookbooks from then) but your pictures make me hungry. In a good way!

Dot said...

Great work. Just stopped by to say have a great weekend. My computer has been acting up but now it seems okay. Again, I love your work and take care.

Rossobella said...

Another wonderful fun illustration from the queen V!

I created a new profile for myself, could you add me to the list of contributors for WWW? Love, your fav red fairy!

Eric Barclay said...

This is just awesome! Love the colors.

indigene said...

What a great illustration! I love this! I've always wanted to illustrate, "The Little Match Girl" there is a melancholy sweetness to it. Anyhow, I'm back and missing ya! Holla back!
