Truly Deeply Mad - The March Hare (Coloured Version) by 


Pastel pencils & felt pens on yellow A4 card.

My version of the March Hare from Alice In Wonderland – he’s been given a cup of chamomile tea to calm his nerves but he hasn’t tried any yet as he thinks he’s still in his straight jacket so can’t move his arms.

Straw on the head was the Victorian way of representing madness which reminded me of the expression “Do you think I’ve got straw coming out my ears?”, so that’s how I’ve shown it.

Van Gogh also struggled with the same affliction, so the hare’s jacket has swirly patterns like Van Gogh’s Starry Night and I thought he should have a big OTT renaissance chair.

Hi! I’m Scottish, I lived in London for 15 years & am now back home. I’ve always loved drawing, I’m self-taught, it’s just something I have to do – so stand aside!

My art CV consists of having had pastel paintings exhibited at Chatelherault Arts Festival 2008-2012 & two of my photos were in the Hue & Cry Open Soul Open Road 2009 tour booklet.

But it’s all in the eye of the beholder, so I hope you like what you see!
