It's late, it's late!: Alice au pays des merveilles!




I'm super happy with my mother's day gift from Mr. Danita! It was a belated gift because it came all the way from France but it was so worth it! It's Alice in Wonderland (in French) illustrated by the great and unique Rebecca Dautremer! She has been one of my favorite artists and I already have a book from her and I like it a lot... but this is ALICE illustrated by HER!!


I love everything about her work, but I think that what I admire the most is her skills to draw absolutely everything and make it perfect and dreamy.



Another thing that I loved about the book is that she drew the actual Alice instead of the usual blonde... This book has revived my love for Alice and I think I'll have to paint her myself too ;)

What Beautiful Artwork! I can't wait to see how she inspires you, as I too love Alice. And I agree that it is nice to see the REAL Alice, no offense to the blondes out there.

I am feeling the need to order that book as well. I just found an Alice hand carved chess set at a garage sale yesterday. It is so interesting, although I am assuming she is blonde just by the looks of her. I have missed you! Sorry I haven't emailed, school is busy right now. I am always prowling around your blog though :)I can't wait to see what her book inspires out of you!
oh my goodness! i have to have this book :D

tu trabajo es tan bello como el de rebecca, son tan distintos ambos estilos, sin embargo logran cautivar, encantar fascinar de la misma manera y con la misma intensidad, yo soy una fan de ustedes......


bellisimas fotos Dani, como logras ese efecto antiguo, con que programa?

besotes gordos y grandes
