We came across this site quite by accident, but thought these sculptures quite nice indeed. I’m particularly fond of the Mock Turtle. Florida artist Dave Kellum created these seven sculptures based on the original Tenniel illustrations. Well done indeed!
Starting tomorrow and ending November 2nd, Upended Productions is remounting its interactive Alice show in the Chicago suburb of Andersonville. As their website puts it
“Taking place over an entire city block in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, this ambulatory, multi-disciplinary show doesn’t seek to retell the story of Alice in Wonderland (that’s been done and done again) but, instead, gives the audience the opportunity to BE Alice.”
Originally produced in 2004, this new production looks to be better than ever. Weekends starting at 1p and running every 15 minutes. Tickets here. Part of Chicago Artists Month.
Just listed at Complete Auctions, original illustration of Carroll from Reader’s Digest. Bid before Thursday and it could be yours!

As in previous years, a large part of the extravaganza will feature Alice themed displays. If your are in the neighbo(u)rhood, stop by and take some photos!
Seems everyone is getting into the swing of Alice 150, including this site celebrating the best of Alice illustrations over the past 150 years.
Attention Carrollians! Today’s TeeFury T-Shirt features the Cheshire Cat and Disney’s Alice.
This shirt is available today (Wednesday, July 9th) only!
If the design is popular enough (which seems likely), then at some point TeeFury will bring it back in their Gallery. But then it will cost $18. Today only, it’s only $11 plus shipping.
Ok, I want to work here. A Serviced Office space in London where everything is themed to Alice in Wonderland! I’d take a meeting here any day!
For those of you who were unable to join us for the Spring meeting last month, you missed a great talk by Craig Yoe on his new book Alice in Comicland (with introduction by our fearless leader Mark Burstein). While we here on the social team did our best to live blog it, I recommend dashing out and getting yourself a copy pronto. For the official press release from the publisher, click me. For a very nice interview with Craig, click me.
From our good friends at the Cassady Collection at USC (hosts of our Fall Meeting 2013) comes this entry to their annual Wonderland Award. Quite stunning. You can see the entire collection of videos uploaded by the Wonderland Awards on their YouTube channel here.
