Alice in Wonderland-Madhatter

This is one of the early Madhatter concepts I did for Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland".
I did the drawing before Johnny Depp was cast in the role, that's why there's no similarity.

There's a lot more original concepts to come, including the design for the Caterpillar, so stay tuned!

Using it today in my Facebook daily program, great picture. THANKS!
(of course with the apropriate credits and link to this profile here ;) )

Would appreciate your friendship there as well if you like to:…

What I am doing on FB is (soon on YouTube and other social media as well):
- A daily program with music, art, literature to hopefully open up some people's eyes
- Trying to raise funds for for a beneficial organization for psychologically ill people
- Writing my own thoughts in my Author's blog "A motherfucker's words of love & brainz", base on my concept of "Love & Balance & Time"

Keep up the awesome work!

I wish for people to stay closer to the book's design, damnit. -_- Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter just looks like a dark clown, and this design right here just looks like a over-stylized steampunk character. Especially the goggles are just too random, and hides more of the expressiveness I'd like to see a Mad Hatter character have.
You're a fantastic artist and all that, yes. Doesn't mean I can not have an opinion. :P

alucinante perfecto wow
I am a Masters student based in Perth WA currently completing an elective on Curatorship and exhibiting. I have to set up an exhibition
and I was referred to your work as perfect for the show. Happy for you to submit beyond the 5th if you need to…
its a bit different- you only have to post an example of some of your work at this stage, preferably with an Alice theme.

Dont hesitate to ask me questions.
