Mad Tea Party by Linnea

Mad Tea Party
by Linnea

Prompt: Mad Teaparty
prompted by: Calypso, during Sketch Fest #16 (July, 2011)

Mechanical pencil. I'm a huge Alice in Wonderland fan (have had the book since I was a kid), so I was very excited about this prompt. This is what the tea party characters look like in my mind. Might turn this into a finished picture...

Deirdre / Wyld_Dandelyon says: I'm not quite sure what that is on the rabbit's head, but overall, very nicely done. Great details, from the spilling tea to the mad hatter's grin and freckles. ~ Reply?

     Linnea Holmström Ljung replied to this: Glad you like it. It's straw on the March Hare's head! Sir John Tenniel illustrated him this way and it was apparantly a common way to depic madness in Victorian times.

Calypso says: I'm quite taken with the freckles, this is quite a fun image. :) ~ Reply?

     Linnea Holmström Ljung replied to this: Hehe, I adore freckles. Glad you like the picture! :)
