commission: we’re all mad here…

I can’t even begin explain how much I loved creating this piece.  Much like me, this client has also been drawn to the memorable iconography of Alice in Wonderland.  Strangely, the story itself never did much for either of us, but the imagery and concepts were captivating.  Speaking with my client, she shared many fragments of her personal history and challenges from her youth–explaining how she has grown into the amazing and motivated woman she is now.  The details of her story are very much her own, and it is not my place to share anymore.  However, I do have the joy have sharing this work created just for her–
