Alice

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful holiday! I'm looking forward to this new year, and the projects that it's bringing for me. The majority this year will be geared toward wedding planning, but I've got an art project in the works as well. I've been talking for years about illustrating Alice in Wonderland, and since my work time this year will be limited, I thought it would be a great time to start and focus on one large project.

I've been working and reworking Alice, trying to find what really fits her in my head. She will shape the rest of Wonderland - though the Cheshire Cat will remain pretty well unchanged from my previous illustrations. Here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on tonight.


A few sketches in the coffee shop. I'm still working on getting just the right face, but the outfit is finalized. The notes around the sketches talk about proportion, things to remember while drawing her, and things that still need work. No idea when the finished book will be ready, I'm trying not to set a finished goal yet since I don't know how much time to work my wedding will afford me. I'll certainly keep y'all updated though! I'll probably be working on unrelated art as well over the year, but this will be my focus.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Let me know!
