Jabberwocky Storyboard by keight Jabberwocky Storyboard by keight
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

21" x 16.25"
Photoshop 7 and CS4
A traditional media set of illustrations done for as a Uni art class assignment that I dredged out a while back, and just for grins and practice, turned digital. It has been languishing on my hard-drive since then. Back when I did this there were no concerns about copyright because it was a simple assignment; “illustrate a story or poem with non-objective shapes”. These days the art is © Katherine V. C. Wadey Graphics, and the poetry is © whomever currently holds the copyrights to the original Alice stories. Enjoy.

EDIT: This should be large enough to actually read the text now. I hope.

"Jabberwocky" also goes very well to the tune "Greensleeves". It also fits to the various tunes of "Amazing Grace", particularly the ones where you inject an "Alleluia" after each verse.

Now that is something I had not heard. It is almost as mind bending as the poem itself. Thanks for the fav as well.

Much more impressive and really rather beautiful. :clap:

Side note, I may have a year or two on you I don't know but do you remember a band who named themselves Frumious Bandersnatch out of LA in the late sixties. Awesome psychedelic band who's bass player, Ross Vallery went on to join Journey.

Thank you very much, Bernie.

I think I vaguely remember the name of the group. I'm one of those types who was raised on swing and classical, and fell in love with the literate snide sarcasm of folk music, just before discovering the complete piano works of Scott Joplin. As to ages, mom used to joke that I was what ended the war (WWII, Europe).

:rofl: It was that sort of time. I was furiously in to west coast and English rock, smoked too much of a certain plant and generally loved the whole hippie thing. :D

Yes, it was. As dad had been career military, and having discovered, via second-hand smoke, that I was violently allergic to that group of plant forms, I was much more an Emma Peel wannabe. :D

That initial image of the jabberwock itself benefits greatly from this minimalist approach, allowing the viewer's imagination to meld with Carrol's description and your own graphic outline; very sophisticated and lovely...
