Off with her head

24” x 32”
Following the theme of Alice in Wonderland, the aim was to capture the Red Queen’s rage and irrationality. The loose rough pen sketch was quickly run underwater then blow-dried to create the wrinkles and veins. The type was built on sharp and rigid shapes with an emphasis on the “F” to mimic a guillotine blade. The “head’s” of each letter are sliced and dislocated to further reinforce the quote. These elements together create a visually shocking impact on the viewer; giving them a sense of danger as though they are in the shoes of Alice during this chapter of the book.
