I’m a huge fan of the Artworks of Ralph Stedman. His illustrations for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas brought the story to life for me as a teenager and I loved every minute of that story. I’d copy the drawings from the books and put them on my walls. So full of life and character, they are what Johnny Depp brought to life when I eventually saw the film version, not so much Hunter S Thompson.
Now I have discovered these illustrations he has made for Alice in Wonderland, which is of course one of my childhood favourites… You’d be hard pushed to find a girl who doesn’t feel the same way. They seem darkly twisted and sometimes confusing, just the way the story needs, feast your eyes.
