Sketchy Alice

Master_Nick-Alice-Sketch1Raven LaRoux and her troupe, the Bodacious Bombshells Burlesque revue, shall perform a Wonderland-themed show next month. In preparation, she’s been reading my annotated hard-bound edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass. We’ve also been listening to the tales on audio book, and watching screen adaptations.

I’d already been well-versed, and have created several works of Wonderland art, but revisiting this world now has inspired me to create a new painting for the coming show.

It used to be that I’d only share my works once they were completed. I’m still getting accustomed to showing my sketches. But if little Alice can stand up to the cruel Queen of Hearts, I can do this, (and you can face your own challenges as well!)

Pictured here is a full-grown Alice, one who ventures beyond the Victorian era to rock a modern age.

Drop in again down the rabbit hole to watch the painting progress, and to catch updates on exhibitions, performances, publications and more! 

For twisted fiction, including a tragic take on the mad tea-party, pick up a copy of “Gonzombie and Other Dark Tales”
