Taking the original story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland written by Lewis Carrol and the corresponding illustrations by John Tenniel, published in 1865, as an inspiration I decided to create several versions of Alice as her circumstances change in her passage through Wonderland.
This version depicts Alice at the time she eats the cake to increase her size so that she can retrieve the key to open the door to the garden but then realises thats she become to big and will not fit through the door and remarks “Curiouser & curiouser,” having grown so large. She is completely muddled at this point in the story and forgets who she is? Becoming increasingly confused and flustered she begins to cry and tells herself off for doing so. At this point the white rabbit enters and on seeing Alice he drops the fan and white gloves and hurries away. Alice subconsciously picks up the fan and begins to fan herself, withe the result of shrinking her size, it it at this stage when she starts to shrink that I have depicted her.
