The new Animal Alphabets challenge starts here. An A-Z of characters from literature. I'm approaching this series with a slight change in style. I'm adding a coloured background and a quote from the book.
Alice in Wonderland, for me, has always been a profoundly disturbing and unsettling experience. Its darkness is too raw, its absurdity too real, its madness too close to the real world to be treated lightly. Even now, I find it an uncomfortable read.
I wanted to reflect this sense of anxiety and menace in my drawing. The cat should not be cute; Alice should not be cute either; she is, as the quote says in a world of terrifying insanity.
