Info

Muse:
Alice in Wonderland character Mad Hatter played by Johnny Depp

Tagline/Quote/Inspiration:

The Hatter’s riddle “why a raven is like a writing desk?” had no answer when Alice In Wonderland was first written. Thru time and the people wanting an answer to this ridiculous riddle, a couple solutions were made up for the pleasure of others. I accepted that there is was no answer to this riddle, but I’ll sip my tea while you ponder.

Final Look


ART SESSION: THE RIDDLE

For every piece I create, I consume YouTube videos to learn more about techniques, the history behind the source, or listen to some music that hypes me up.

Discover more about the author Lewis Carroll, and how his conflicting past has put a dull view on this classic children’s book. Also paint with some popular art YouTubers, 10Hundred and SLEW as they share their painting tips.
