Alice in Wonderland

My coursework project for A2 Art and Design: Fine Art was based on Narrative Art, and telling stories visually. This ended up with me studying and illustrating my own representation of Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland.

This was a drawing from a previous illustration - I cannot remember who did it. It took ages.

My own Alice eventually ended up becoming a bit of a lolita. After reading about all of the stories of Lewis Caroll possibly having a bit of a dodgy relationship with a real life Alice, I decided to switch her role. And make her more sexualised. The reason for this sexualisation probably came to my mind when researching the story of Alice itself. I was working my way through the various film representations of Alice, and when I got to 'Alice in Wonderland (1976)' it came to my attention after watching it for a few minutes, that this version was in fact an adult version. And not just any adult version, it was also a musical - making the extended title: 'Alice in Wonderland: A Musical Porno'. If you ever get a chance to watch this, do, looking back it's really quite hilarious, I suppose, once you get over the horror of Tweedledee and Tweedledum bursting into song then proceeding to take part in a 69.

But anyway, Alice basically just ended up becoming a classic 1950's pin up girl which have always been such an obsession of mine. She is a mish-mash of (quite obviously) Marylin Monroe, standing on the grate in 'The Seven Year Itch', and Gil Elvgren's coy yet more-than-meets-the-eye girls who always end up exposed whilst doing their womanly chores, for example somehow managing to get their broom handle stuck up their skirt in such a way that reveals the very top of their stockings, or sometimes, if we're lucky, their drawers.

I just love their expressions, the 'Oh no, my knickers are completely on show, I'm so embarassed, but don't stop looking, as I secretly like it. ' And the notion that back then, the only way you could see a girl's underwear was by some freak archery accident. Still so much is left to the imagination yet it's still so sexy. This is worlds sexier than any page 3 Sun tart. There's so much more charm. So much more personality. Exactly how I wanted my Alice in Wonderland to be.
