I can not tell a lie. This theme was my idea. I wanted to draw it so bad!!! I got a little carried away with it and do not want to stop..but I had to post it! It's my favorite book of all time..and I love all of the movie versions, animated and black and white. (not a fan of the Burton one tho) My favorite movie version is THIS.
How do you not only reinterpret a classic but also- one that has been done over and over again? and so beautifully.... Have you ever seen THIS @ The Carle? I cried- it was so pretty.
How to do my own? You close your eyes and pretend you are there... I thought what if I were Alice- well, she'd have dark hair. After all, that's what I wanted- to fall asleep in the sunshine and be woken up by the white rabbit and fall down that hole! In this world of my own - there would be a touch of the things I love. So I thought of old funny page strips - and my tea pot collection and sailor tops. Every few years I re-read the books and it never gets old. The nonsense. The word play. The rhyme.
I must finish this don't you think? It needs me to... otherwise, Off with my HEAD!

While the pessimist shakes their fist at losing an hour of sleep, we optimists embrace the extra hour of daylight. And the warmer temperatures don't hurt. Lucky duck that I am, I get to hang out on the back deck after a day at the office with my kiddo playing cards, listening to the ballgame, sipping lemonade and grilling some apple-maple chicken sausages. Spring forward, people! It's a swell thing. And so are the apple-maple chicken sausages.
