The Duchess

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Concept sketch of the Duchess from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  A tribute to the art of John Tenniel. I sort of see the Duchess as a woman with a lot of wealth but not a lot of class. She has elegant stuff but it's tacky and not maintained well. In the book and orginal Tenniel drawing, Alice finds her sitting in her kitchen fill with smoke and broken dishes. Her cook won't stop putting pepper on whatever she's cooking and the Duchess' ugly baby is screaming in her (the Duchess) arms. This sounds like a woman who does not seem to take care of things around her. Sort of like Miss Hevisham in Great Expectaions
