Little Things (IF 12.12.07)

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “Little Things” which suggested all sorts of possibilities.

As I ducked my head under the sunbirds’ nest, I thought of baby birds.

I cursed the little white flies on the acalypha that make the bush seem dusted with icing sugar.

Then something made me think of “Alice” and I went down the rabbit hole of my memory, back to my childhood copy illustrated by Tenniel. I started on a lino cut, but realised I would not have time to print, dry and photograph it so that’s set aside for the moment.

So, not in the same class, here is my giant Alice and the bottle labelled “drink me.”
(I’m not sure Alice wore stripey stockings…pen and water colour.)
