Much as I love Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, I tend to be indifferent to its sequel, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There. My feelings concerning my illustration of it are just as neutral, largely because of its long gestation. Owing to a crazy work schedule, what should have taken a week took over a month, with half hours snatched here and there. I mind paintings taking so long because the closer I am to the moment of the idea, the more clearly it translates into a successful piece. Given how well Alice turned out, plus the fact that Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum have the child molester look I was going for, I'll consider this one worth the wait.
