Painted by Sandra Chang-Adair, Steampunk Alice in Wonderland is seated on a mushroom by a giant mechanical caterpillar controlled by the Mad Hatter. This painting should please fantasy and steampunk enthusiasts. This lovely 20" x 24" reproduction is printed on a sturdy aluminum sheet and suitable for both indoor and outdoor display. The image is very glossy and vibrant. Also provided are two optional adhesive mounting blocks to attach to the back of the print for immediate hanging so the print can stand-off from the wall giving the print depth and dimension if you choose not to frame.
I painted this for the CG Society's Steam Punk Myth/Legends Challenge. Although I got the painting done in time, I didn't read the instructions properly and never submitted a large size format jpeg so it was never entered in the competition. Nevertheless, I like what I did, and hope to paint more steam punk fairy tales. I already have some ideas in mind. For this piece, I went through the whole gamut of subject matter before I picked Alice in Wonderland. I considered Lady of Shallot, La Dames sans Merci, King Arthur, and Joan of Arc. Eventually, I thought painting Alice would be more fun, with an oversized mechanized caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Door Mouse from the story. I even stuck my dogs in it. Ripley as a puppy and my aussie rescue, Freckles. If you look carefully, Alice is reading Tesla's Wireless Transmission of Electricity. I am a big fan of Nikola Tesla, he and I are born on the same day (but he was born on the stroke of midnight)!
This painting was also chosen in the 2010 Society of Illustrators Los Angeles Illustration West 48 exhibit and published in Heavy Metal Magazine and also graced the cover of Corel Painter Magazine.Read More (View all photos)
