Alice and the Cheshire cat by MichaelBrack Alice and the Cheshire cat by MichaelBrack
I was reading Alice (for the first time...) a few weeks ago and felt like drawing something about it... So here is my version of the Cheshire cat, which for some reason looks a bit like a scary version of the cat-bus from Totoro :D
Alice, although drawn in a "semi-realistic" way, is inspired by the real Alice Liddell.

Pen & ink, washed ink and white acrylic on paper (29,7 cm x 42 cm).

Note: You can buy the original on Etsy [link]

I love this it's the way someone should do a dark version of Alice In Wonderland. Providing a sense of alienation and fear as well adding blood and murder.

Well, the book is great, with lots of crazy characters and a cool "nonsense" humor. Just read it already :D

It kinda reminds me of a Hayao Miyazaki picture. Like if he made his own anime version of Alice in Wonderland, it would look like this.

that's incredible... I love the textures the trees seem to have... and the frightened, nervous look on Alice's face really seems to be what she would be feeling right then. I love the grin you gave the cat. The detail of the work on the background is absolutely marvolous and stunning. If I could suggest DD, this would be one that I would put out there.

Actually, the CatBus was inspired by the Cheshire cat...Miyazaki (the producer) was, and still is, heavily influenced by Lewis Carroll's work. :nod:

Great work! I love how realistic!Alice contrasts with cartoony-Cheshire cat.
