In sync with Tim Burton's forthcoming Alice in Wonderland movie, Harper Collins decided to release an updated version of Lewis Carrol's classic tale with illustrations from Camille Rose Garcia. As Harper Collins’ states, “Think Alice goes Goth, and you′ve got the magic of this special book.” The illustrations were done in watercolor and acrylic and look just about as ghoulish and great as you can get. I love seeing old classic tales get an updated look. Way to go, Harper Collins, for choosing the ever-so-talented Camille Rose Garcia to take the book to a whole new level.
Take a sneak peek of it below.
Camille Rose Garcia was born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, where she visited Disneyland and went to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era. Her paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales are critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.
