TIME AND THE JABBERWOCKY

It's TIME for the next ALTERED ALICE challenge.......the theme this TIME is TIME!
This piece is not my official piece of inspiration, that will appear in a short while, this is just a piece to introduce the challenge and cos I felt the need to make something as it's been a while!!
 ......a page in my A4 journal....................the large clock was a piece by Bo Bunny........

 ......I used the quote chosen to represent the challenge in the centre of the clock..............

 .....OCTOPODE FACTORY white rabbit with a metal steampunk charm added to his head..................


More Alice related news..................recently I had an email from DANIEL COLEMAN who has written a book based around the JABBERWOCKY poem.........here is an excerpt........it sounds great fun.........and there is a HATTER story to follow.........


“One, two! One, two!and through and through the vorpal blade went snicker-snack!” Blood pounded inTjaden’s ears as he breathed in the acrid odor, and his sword didn’t falter.Not after the convoluted road that had led him to set out alone to find andslay the manxome Jabberwocky. But the secretshe’d learned about the Jabberwocky’s sorrowful past made it a sour victory.How different wouldthe situation be if the girl he loved wasn’t at risk? Why didn’t CaptainDarieus tell him the dark secrets surrounding theTumtum tree? Jabberwocky, a shortnovel by Daniel Coleman, is the untold story behind LewisCarroll’s beloved poem. Meet the characters and creatures that inhabitthe world long before Aliceever fell down the rabbit’s hole.While staying true toevery detail of Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece,Jabberwocky provides twists that will keep you turning pages. You might knowhow it ends, but you won’t believe how it happens.
