Heading to the Looking Glass

I have been in love with Alice in Wonderland since I was a little girl. The imagery from the story is like candy for me. I've long admired illustrated books of Alice. For years I have wanted to delve into bringing my own imagination to the story, and today (while recovering from a dental visit) I started on it. Not at the beginning, but rather with one of my favorite characters, the Cheshire Cat. So here he is, my first rendition of the riddling trickster!

I think while I sit and watch TV tonight, I will write up a list of characters and scenes I would like to paint from the story. It's been a long time since I've read it, perhaps another reading is in order. 

What about you dear readers, do you have a favorite character or scene from Alice in Wonderland? Leave yours in the comments, who knows, perhaps I will render your favorite in the near future!
