Rabbit Chase

Here is the latest image I completed for my upcoming book.

Compositionally, this illustration is based on an early Monet painting that I always loved.  The girl in the foreground is Alice's sister who reads stories to Alice.  Alice soon becomes bored and when the White Rabbit shows up, the chase is on.

This illustration has two dolls (Alice and her sister) . The rabbit is painted into the background in this scene.  Later in the story he is three-dimensional.  I thought it was interesting for this scene because Alice is about to go into another world--another dimension, like stepping into a painting.


  1. Nancy, this is image is beautiful. I can't wait for the finished product!

  2. This is beautiful and fascinating! I can't wait to see the book.
