Preview of "Into the Rabbit Hole" FRIDAY Night!

The past couple of weeks I've been working on a very complicated drawing (my fingers hurt to type) for the Into the Rabbit Hole art exhibit in East Nashville.  The show is one night only this Friday featuring live performances and art from local artists.  Everything is Alice in Wonderland themed and you can even win some cool prizes for dressing up as your favorite character from the book or cartoon!  Everything kicks off around 7PM at The East Room in Nashville.

For my artwork, I wanted to create my own homage to Lewis Carroll's famous work.  Much of the character designs I used was a fusion of the book, cartoon and my own wild imagination.  Enjoy these teases but you'll have to come to the show Friday to see the complete work!  Here are some process pictures of the entire process over the past couple of weeks from the sketch to the finished colors...
