Hi Hervé, no I never read any of Lewis Carroll's other works, though I have came across the 'Sylvie and Bruno' title through one of the great writer's bios, I will certainly make an effort to check it out! ah, you being an Alice fan, I hope I haven't taken too many liberties with your fav characters! thank you, my friend

I like when artists refer to poetry or literature.I always loved Alice,did you ever read Sylvie and Bruno?

somerset's picture

Ah Bean Shae, I admire your work so much, a heart felt thanks!

The way you do the tone is so great and storkes are compact,and the characters are so lively.Really nice colored pencil artworks,too.

Aha! Thank you, Patrick! I'm so glad you can see the humour in this one, that has always been my main aim...optimism and fun!

I'm always happy to see Alice-related art, James. This one is particularly nice! It has great rendering, along with humour and heart.

I am deeply touched by your reaction to this one, Jessica, thank you so much!

Guest's picture

I am constantly in awe of your skills with colored pencil. . . this is beautiful. The dormouse is adorable. And this has got to be my favorite portrayal of the Mad Hatter EVER! He has a sort of debonair, deranged pathos. Bravo!!

Thank you, Bill! aha! question time ok here goes..to finnish a picture takes me between one and two weeks, total time spent on the actual work is about 30 hours, sometimes a little more, as working with pencil can be a slow process, most of my pictures are '33 x 24 inches'includig 'Wonderland', my pencils are Caran 'D'Ashe Supracolor'which is a watercolour pencil, if I can't get them I use 'Derwent/watercolour' thank you again Bill, you've made me realise that I really should have this info on my descriptions, lol!

I like everything about this one james. It has a great color, compositon, character, everything! Alice in wonderland was one of my favorite childrens books, I used to love the illustrations by John Tenniel.

Just a few questions:
How long did it take to do? how big is it? and what color pencils did you use?

somerset's picture

Ha!Ha!Creepy old guy from " poltergeist", lol! auntie Mary will love that!!..nice one Erika, great to hear from such a talent, keep on keeping on!

erikathorpe's picture

This is great, the mad hatter reminds me of that creepy old man in 'Poltergeist' you know the one that says to Carol-Ann "Wuzza matter angel? are ya lost....". anyways I like your modern interpretation of the famous tale, nice work!

somerset's picture

A compliment from you is a treat! thank you, Michele-Lee

Guest's picture

This pic is pure magick, James. I love all of it. The detail is amazing, the subject matter a fave, and that hamster/mouse is just too cute for words Smile

somerset's picture

Thanks Ric, it's not a hamster by the way, but a golden welsh dormouse! I know that most of the famous illustrations depict the African species...I just wanted to be different! lol!

rquiroz's picture

I love the Hamster. The colors are wonderful.

somerset's picture

Ha! I'm working on Robin Hood at the moment, but I'm sure there must be a Humpty Dumpty that I know somewhere! lol!...thanks Vicki

bernie's picture

I like it! Hey, how about Humpty Dumpty next??!!

somerset's picture

Thanks Steve! I really did enjoy doing the Hatter, such a character!

somerset's picture

Thanks Sean! the Hatter's real life counterpart can be a bit fruity at times too, you know! lol!

Art at its best.
