This brings us to this month’s edition of Eye on Alice, a continuation of the ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ theme. These are more modern illustrations for Alice’s encounter with the White Rabbit and her plummet down the rabbit hole.
Anne Bachelier is a contemporary surrealist painter and illustrator, and her work for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is, in my opinion, among her best, particularly her Mad Tea Party illustration, which will appear later on this blog:
Courtney Brims mostly illustrates women. I love her sense of design, and she has a very nicely designed website as well:
A more cartoonish version:
Fernando Falcone’s illustration is more of an Alice-inspired image than an actual image for the book. Still, I had to include it because I love how he made the White Rabbit tall and intimidating. Falcone is another one with a beautifully designed website:
Gennadi Kalinovski’s Alice is probably the earliest version in this post, but it has a contemporary feel to it:
Much of José Sanabria’s work has a pleasantly chaotic feel that is perfectly suited to children’s books:
Julia Gukova’s Deco-like Surrealism is a good match for the squares (cards, chessboard) that runs thematically through the Alice books:
