rossichka said...

Oh, do you have more "old" illustrations to "Alice..."? Just wonderful! The mood, the characters, the torn yellowish page! Don't you feel tempted to draw new ones?:))

lissa said...

a terrific creation, nonetheless

hope you're day is sweet.

Ilaria Benedetti said...

Old, but still very nice! How's everything, Little Devil? It's a long time since my last post...why time goes so fast? Why the day hasn't 34 hours?

heidialdin said...

It may be an oldie, but it's a goody!

Looks like it's from a first edition of Alice in Wonderland. So old and precious.

Love, love love! Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite stories.

Ces said...

Aaaawww!!! This type of cheating is beautiful! Beautiful One, this is as lovely as you. My favorite so far, why? Your mushroom is beautiful!

red-handed said...

This is one of your best -- really.

Ana said...

I love it, Mita!!
My favourite story, I always wanted to be Alice when I was a child. Wonderland seems like the perfect place to be even now...where else can I celebrate my unbirthday with a mad tea party everyday?
You can cheat all you want if you are going to show us beautiful artwork like this one, I don't mind :)

Andrew Finnie said...

Hah, never cheating, but always beautiful...

and your work is good too :)

Ted Blackman said...

Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater!!
Well, I kid... because I must admit I did that myself once, and posted an old cartoon for Illustration Friday awhile back when I just felt too lazy to draw something up fresh. And to be honest I had an old cartoon that was perfect for the new word but havent been able to find it, so I guess I'll have to draw it up new, and avoid the second cheat. HA! But I certainly would have cheated had I found it. Double HA!!
I keep noticing people on that site who only post their portfolio links, and completely ignore the word assignment. What up with that? At least you and I have a conscience about it and aren't selfish like those folks. And that's a good thing.

Oh, and that is a beautiful Alice in Wonderland piece. Love that story.

Hey, I just read your parting line at the bottom of your comments... wow, you ARE dramatic. Good luck with that.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by again. I won't let you down and will always keep you smiling.

audrey said...

Ah, Mita, I remember when you did this drawing ~ I think it was 250 years ago. It is as beautiful today as it was then. Oh, how time flies..... or was it because we slipped down that hole????
Love you, sweet one.

Alex Ferreiro said...

Hey, thank you very much for your comment!
And I'm your Follower number 500! You have a very delicate work, it is clear that you care very much your technique.
Greetings!

art is jokken said...

I can see it is a very very old drawing! It is almost falling apart! :D
BTW, I had exactly such a pocket watch like this rabbit! Ohh, now I understand..

Ana said...

Mita helloooooo
I'm shouting through the rabbithole :)
As someone told, you should definitely take a look at Jan Švankmajer film version of Alice. It's very dark and an interesting work with stop motion animation. In fact you should look all Švankmajer you can, he's great.
What do you think of Tim Burton's version? It was a big disappointment for me, with that amazing story I think he could have make it much better.

Sunny said...

very lovely, as always~:)

Aria said...

You are not lazy, you don't have time :p right? :D I don't have time too, now. : ( BTW: Beautiful work,of course, you know :)

Ces said...

Aaaaww! I was painting. Then I fell asleep on the love seat that Daisy uses as her bed. I have to go to sleep now. I am exhausted. I will wake up and paint again tomorrow. Tsup!

finefine said...

Old drawing for you, new one for us ! Alice is one of my favourite characters, I've worked a lot around her. Thanks for the thrill !

Ces said...

Now I am awake! I am eating my birthday cake. Come eat cake and drink tea with me!

Ces said...

It is 3:24 AM here and I am painting and eating cake and drinking tea! With you!

Ces said...

We have been friends for more than a year!

donny* said...

Eh. Old, schmold. It's a perfectly awesome one so, post away. Haven't been able to get out as much as I'd like. Good to see you're still here. :)

Snezana said...

Maybe it's old but always beautiful and fresh!:)

Rrramone said...

You realize that Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books ever. This makes me smile.

And it's ok to be lazy. xoxo

martinealison said...

Je suis un peu indisciplinée en ce moment, je manque beaucoup de choses, mais je suis extrêmement heureuse d'admirer cette belle oeuvre.... Alice au pays des merveilles... Elle m'a et elle me fait toujours rêver... J'adore les contes... et j'aime ce beau lapinou!!! Une illustration précieuse à bien conserver...
Gros bisous

I've missed you, my dear witch! The faeries and I are doing well..and hubby too. We are sending my eldest to Washington DC soon for a leadership camp and I am already missing her. : ( But I am ok..I will keep working and painting and hopefully be better at visiting. I LOVE this piece! The layers in your composition is fantastic - LOVE the mushroom, the white rabbit set in sepia tone and Alice laying in color amongst those cards...gorgeous work! I love it! I've missed you and am so glad you popped by. : )

Andrew Finnie said...

Hey! I am reverse sad, thank you. I didn't know we were made of wood. Maybe that's why I've been giving people splinters ;)

we have a Holiday in Oz, to celebrate the birthday of a queen we no longer have :)

But I am stayoing away from the candles, ;) you better too!

Hi, Mita. It feels like 200 years since we last communicated, but I know better. What are you doing?
xoxoxoxoxo FF

audrey said...

Yes, Mita, I am still busy. I would love to have a lull in my time and just relax and play. The photo you commented on is our blueberry patch. We've already eaten many of them - SO good!!
We are ALL too busy. We should be having more fun. I will fly over and we will have some fun.

Hello, nice drawing, as I hope everything goes well. There is a way to speak with you live, a chat or facebook.

In the Light of the Moon said...

Magical!Hugs,Cat

Ana said...

haha, I think you are right, maybe the biggest problem with that movie was that there was too much Tim Burton in it.

Ana said...

I knew you would enjoy Švankmajer,I can't wait to see Insects :)

roberto said...

Oh, mysteriously, today, I can leave comment here. Okay!

roberto said...

Well, as always, a picture with many details of talent, that make us ask ourselves a hundred things,
obviously the answer, not be told by the artist
that would break the mystery, and that should never happen.
Mystery as the Blogger who now allows me to leave this comment, and not yesterday

Andrew Finnie said...

hello you must be sleeping still... a new sb eh?

Ces said...

Hello darling! I hope you are well. Take care, okay? You are in my mind. I love you Beautiful! Tsup!

roberto said...

Lakhsmita, thank you, really thank you very much for your comment :)
The women kiss eyed, do not know themselves that can be
You never know if you'll come across a woman with kiss eyes and do not know if you're a woman with kiss eyes, that only a man can know
(if you look toward me, I can tell you if you are)
Some girls have asked me if there are men with kiss eyes, obvious!
You can know at any time
You must be ready, perhaps in the supermarket, the gas station, a shopping, I do not know. in your car waiting for green traffic light...

audrey said...

xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
For you, because I am thinking about you and hoping you are having a happy summer.

roberto said...

can I ask a question?
Yes? ... thanks
In this blog is allowed to think out loud?
