Recently I reread Alice's stories and fell in love with her. Alice is a plucky little girl who doesn't get fazed by the bizzare adventures that are thrust upon her. After checking first the famous black-and-white illustrations by Sir John Tenniel are out of copyright, I decided to render some of my favorite illustrations in color.

Alice follows a white rabbit into the rabbit hole. As she slowly floats down, she has time to look around.: "Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end? 'I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?' she said aloud." This is the event that starts off Alice's strange adventures in Wonderland!
