The Walrus and The Carpenter

Master_Nick-WlrsCrpntr4webThe Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
“If this were only cleared away,”
They said, “it would be grand!”

“If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year.
Do you suppose,” the Walrus said,
“That they could get it clear?”
“I doubt it,” said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

Excerpt from “Through the Looking Glass (And What Alice Found There)”
– Lewis Carroll

In honor of this Saturday night’s Burlesque in Wonderland performance, I’m releasing hitherto unavailable art as prints. It’s about time, too! I finished the above illustration over a year ago! I get so caught up in creating the next work that many completed pieces are left utterly neglected.

There, there, creepy carnivorous characters. We still love ya!
