Started with the girl, then her dream world... thanx to Kitty again for inspiration. God, my hand is dead--I hand colored everything--all that black? yeah... and stupid me, I used ballpoint pen for bird and houses, graphite pencil for sky and mountain, and then black colored pencil for ground--all are different shades of black!! ARGISH!! oh well, I like how Alice and the roses turned out.
Here is my poem, inspired by my drawing. (A little backwards, I know...)
Note: the signs say (on left) Wizard and (on right) Witch.
Alice in her twisted Oz
into the crooked lullaby
to escape the fang and claw of the world's demise.
Pausing her wandering quest
beside the winding wild road
the fair Alice laid to rest--
amid the fantasy grows a rose.
Alice lays in enchanted sleep--
here she will ever dwell,
in her darker shade of dream
roses falling where she fell.
