Custom Spotlight: Alice by Laura Colors
Ha ha… that’s pretty obvious. I LOVE the original Alice in Wonderland and that was my inspiration.
Hmmm… I love painting on anything, but Mega’s are super fun because there is so much space to fill. I feel like I can tell a story Illustratively on a Mega. This one was unique because of it’s crown, collar, cape and it has no arms. I wasn’t sure how I was going to handle the quilting on the cape. I had considered sculpting over it to make it a flat surface. In the end however, I came up with the idea to do red and black checkerboard which was simple, and a nice contrast to everything else that I have going on (imo).
Probably stripping and priming it. I’m always anxious to get started painting and it’s hard to be patient enough to do those things correctly.
I’m inspired by fairytales, classic animation, nature and the woods surrounding my studio, my work is a result of many hours spent creating characters, sculpts, vinyl figures and fantasy worlds.
