Kathy, it must have taken you forever to individually colour those leaves! The effect is brilliant though. I love the ogre; his hair, nose and even the detail to his ears are just perfect, a great story for us all to follow

Kathy, Kathy, Kathy, you have just stolen my heart with yet another one of your fantastic illustration. No, really. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland!!! It's my all time favorite stories. I collect the every book I can get my hands on. I love to see how people will illustrate the story. Your illustration has this kind of feel to it. I love the friendly Ogre invited for tea the little girl with cupcake in hand and the animals are done so loving. I can truly tell that you enjoy each moment with pencil in hand. It's brilliant just like you. Thanks so much for stopping by. I really appreciate it.

Lovely, especially the delicate fall leaves, & I'm intrigued by the story you are developing.

Mark Cavell said...

Fab work as usual. I love the autumn leaves (my fave time of year). So much detail.
Are these illusts part of a book?

Michael O'Connell said...

your work is brilliant… i am noticing a theme lately… and special reason for the ogre in the last three?
