March Hare and his Tea Party - Kelly
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!
