Tales and Legends 2



This is my 1st time to ever to post 2 illustrations in one week to the Illustration Friday challenge, but I had the time, loved the topic and was inspired to do Alice in Wonderland - falling down the rabbit hole. When Alice fell, she had just seen the white rabbit hurrying along looking at his pocket watch. Falling down the hole, she saw a jar of Orange Marmalade, picture frames and maps. I tried to capture all of these things in a "hip" style, not a traditional scene, which most picture books are, rather a suggestion of the scene. I personally like this, but I'd love to hear from you all and see if I am on the right track with this style. Leave me a comment, if you care to, good or bad comments are welcome.

I like the design of this piece better, but I have to give you bonus points for the back story on your first post. Very serendipitous. Nice work on both.
