The Tea Party - Selfie in Wonderland
The Cheshire cat is taking a selfie at the tea party. But it's that awkward type of picture where everyone isn't quite ready. Alice looks a bit surprised. The dormouse is trying to squeeze in, but the Cheshire cat is blocking the way, and the March hare is caught mid-pose, looking a bit goofy. As always, the Mad Hatter (a cheeky monkey) is perfectly fine with it all.
Illustrated in the style of a vintage Edwardian or Victorian photograph. This image is part of my 'Anicurio®' collection. Each original illustration is carefully hand drawn in pencil. Once finished, I often hand age and treat them with various dye methods, to resemble an old dusty antique photograph. I want this series to suggest something that was rediscovered by you. An inherited artifact from a mysterious benefactor? Or perhaps revealed in a long abandoned attic, lying at the bottom of a chest. Buried beneath old dusty clothes and fading hand written notes.
