“Afternoon Tea With The Neighbors”
30″ x 48″ acrylics on canvas. 2013. ORIGINAL SOLD. Prints available here:
A tribute mashing up the mad tea party from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland” and some of my favorite Studio Ghibli (Hayao Miyazaki) characters: Howl as the Mad Hatter, accompanied by Calcifer; Totoro as the March Hare; Ponyo as the Dormouse; No Face as the Caterpillar; Kiki as Alice, accompanied by jiji; Yubaba as the Queen of Hearts; Chibi Totoro as the White Rabbit; a Cheshire Catbus; And a few other characters and a bunch of references hidden throughout the painting.
