Lewis Carroll’s amazing adventure, certainly deserves a re-acquaintance. Tenniel’s illustrations are wonderful and created a great starting point for work. My colour choice for the characters is based on the colour variations created by other illustrators such as Harry G. Theaker, (supplying the blue dress, the blonde hair and the “Alice” band). The colours have varied in different editions over the years.

I’ve tried to cover as many of the characters

in their own world (the sphere) as possible within the piece and to suggest its Victorian background with the ornate architectural structure. There are many interesting references to time within the story hence the clockwork mechanism below the globe.

Although technically challenging I thoroughly enjoyed creating this celebration piece and have already started to plan “150 Years of Through the Looking Glass” for 2021!
