Books & Keyholes

Darian and I went and saw the new Alice in Wonderland this weekend. I made the above painting as soon as I got home. It was visually inspired, but the story was a little uninspired.

The below photo is just something I was trying out. I did that thing where you just randomly open a book on the shelf, but instead of trying to play magic 8 ball with it looking for deeper meaning, I turned it into a canvas. I think the Keyhole was partially due to the fact this was done on the heels of finishing the Alice painting. (No classic books were harmed in the making of this painting. I scanned it and painted on the printed page.)

For a second there I thought you painted on the book! Cute.

I haven't gone to see Alice yet. As much as I like Johnnie Depp, & Elena BC, the adds looked just plain weird.

I just saw it this weekend and wasn't that happy with it. They left out all the classic parts. And you know what a fan I was of the original.

Great drawing though. I haven't picked up a medium in years.
