drawing challenge / Alice




Thank you Nadine for taking me back to New Orleans this week with Alice.  For this is where I read all about Alice's adventures in Wonderland to the kids; including the pop-up version.

Dear Rachel,
that facial expression of your Alice, this underworld, that black and white chess design of her dress... its wonderful drawing!

Love, Ariane.

this is what I like
no, what I love about your work
you says it all with clear lines
nothing more
I like all the white
the two papers giving depth
her expression
the movement
a beautiful Alice
in fact did somebody else draw an Alice?....

dear Rachel, as a child i loooooved someone reading or telling me stories( as a matter of fact i still do;)) so nice you read this story to your children, precious moments.
I always like your drawings, they are very expressive and so is this one, wonderful, xx

Love your falling Alice, and how you make drawing seem so, so simple. I wish it was. Delightful!
Love,
Lilli

oh rachel, is your alice wonderful or what?
this simplicity holds so much promise. i think, and i am very sure, this is just the beginning of your alice version, miss! you're gonna have to think up the story all over again, the rachel way, and then illustrate it already. thoughtful alice!

and if it can console you in any way... i never even liked alice when i was a child, i think i was too much of a realist back then (if that is possible), and the older i'm getting, the madder.
if you catch my drift.
so these days, alice on my mind, all of the time....

Rachel! This is great! I think you should make little cards out of this! The card could say something from Alice: "Well, after this I should think nothing of falling down stairs." or something along the lines of Jenny Holzer "The most profound things are inexpressible.".
