Alice's Dream

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Ah, cruel Three! In such an hour,Beneath such dreamy weather,To beg a tale of breath too weakTo stir the tiniest feather!Yet what can one poor voice availAgainst three tongues together?Imperious Prima flashes forthHer edict to "begin it"--In gentler tones Secunda hopes"There will be nonsense in it"--While Tertia interrupts the taleNot more than once a minute.Anon, to sudden silence won,In fancy they pursueThe dream-child moving through a landOf wonders wild and new,In friendly chat with bird or beast--And half believe it true. From the poem "All In The Golden Afternoon" by Lewis CarrollThis weekend I have been at a class held by the Norwegian illustrator Gunvor Rasmussen. She, I and three other participants created drawings from the Alice-books "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-glass". I was lucky to hear about the class. A woman working with culture business in Bergen had seen my drawings at trafo.no, and told be about it because she thought I'd might like it. And well, as I love the Alice-books and adore Gunvor's illustrations, I can say I really, really did! I drew this picture in my beloved combination of pencil on paper and colour+edit in photoshop. I'm quite happy with it!Alice is a creation by Lewis Carroll and does not belong to me. This drawing however, does, and I ask you not to use it for anything without my permission.
