So this is my first post here - I'm not typically all that crafty, more into painting and illustration, but i wish desperately sometimes that i could sew, or produce something more useful than pictures. Sometimes the crafty hits me though - these are some collages I made on wood panels using these old images i found in a book of non-copy-righted pictures. hope someone finds the time to take a look - and if you do, hope you like them!

Alice in Wonderland is such a fun subject matter. This is pretty beautiful and interesting. Love the composition and overal dreamy atmosphere. Is this all really collage? Alot of it seems to tie in so well as if it's from the same source rather than individual pieces. It all has a somewhat sketchy style to it and the background brings it all into one realm. Lovely work.

Wonderful.
I love Alice in Wonderland, you can do so much with it. You can make it look sweet, innocent, and dream-like, or you can make it look like a terrifying hellish nightmare.

I really like these, good work! =]

These are really amazing!! I love your style and the way you've done the mixed media.  Were these made as illustrations for a book, or to stand alone?

Your style is super awesome! It reminds me a bit of the artist of Pink Floyd's The Wall art and movie, which I LOVE. Beautiful! Cheesy

These are all amazing!
I love how the queen of heart's crown is made up of a castle & how one of the clocks looks translucent over the white rabbit--it gives it a lot of visual depth. You can tell you are very creative in each one alone! WONDERFUL JOB! Smiley

These are very very cool collages. It reminds me of work a friend of mine did all during senior art this year but a lot more sophisticated.  Cheesy

What a wonderfully surreal style you have! You have a great eye for composition. I love them all, though my favorite is the queen of hearts collage. Great work!
