This illustration was done for The Alice Project, a book collaboration initiated by Dan Bergevin. I decided to illustrate the moment when Alice is trying to play
cricket with the flamingo "club" and the hedgehog "ball", and I just knew I had to a 3D figure. So I start modeling Alice from clay on a wire frame, with clay and
papier mâché. I wanted something original, with a surreal feeling, so I gave Alice a bunny mask and I decided not to use many colors. Making the figurine was exciting and fun, but I had trouble putting together the actual illustration. Luckily, my sister Maria
improvised a Photo Studio, and helped me take some pictures that preserved in 2D the mystery and eerie atmosphere the actual statue had. Also, we used transparent sheets, and played with light in order to have a suggestion of a background, and a reflection.
And the rest is digital work.
