The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice.
“Who are you?” said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”
~ Lewis Carroll, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” 1865)

This was created as part of “Alice In Wonderland: A Space Opera,” an art exhibition in April 2024. It was held at Monster, an awesome shop in Ballard, Washington, and the location that has carried my art since 2007, longer than any other. “Alice In Wonderland: A Space Opera” was an exploration of Alice’s adventures across time and space through art. It started as a random idea: What if Alice’s adventures occurred far in the future while exploring the universe on her own. I started sketching ideas down and quickly invited a few friends, (Mike Capp, Michael Gardner, Travis Torgerson and my son, Calvin Hillgrove), to join in on my little adventure.
