This is my drawing for the Taletellers contest. This is a depiction of Lewis Carroll, formerly known as Charles, sitting with his most famous characters for a cup of tea on his Unbirthday. Lewis Carroll has inspired so many people, yet when his name is spoken most people don't know who he is. His ideas have turned into many many movies and cartoons and spin offs all over the world so I thought that by putting him with his characters, it would draw more attention to him, and let people know he is the one who is behind so many fascinating tales. Also, he is wearing a Dodo Bird hat because he most identified with it, some think maybe because he had a very bad stutter, and had trouble pronouncing his last name, Dodgson, and may have just referred to himself as Dodo instead! I don't believe I have ever spent so much time or put so much effort into a piece, and I am beyond proud of myself for coming up with the set-up and layout of this alone, without help. I am just learning to be a true artist, so this challenge has helped me more than any art book ever has. Its even helped me to find my style, because I seem to really enjoy the realistic cartoon-y stuff. I really hope you like it Jazza! here is the link to my video :) https://www.facebook.com/ashley.deaton.9828/posts/898306270314163?pnref=story
