    I would have to say Alice she gets to play in the whole movie 🙂

  • Teonna

    I’m a huge book reader, but the Disney live action version is my favorite. I’m a big fan of movies that have a creepy or “off” feeling to them while still being cute. Alice questions everything and she fights back! Those are the type of characters I’m inspired to draw. I’m also in love with the Cheshire Cat. He’s mysterious, full of secrets and such a mischievous cat. It could also be because I’m not so secretly a cat lady in the making!

  • Terry

    I read the book as a child but never watched a movie version

  • Sharon White

    Jane, I must of had a deprived childhood because I never read the book and nor had I seen the movie – until yesterday. I thought I better educate myself before Wonderland starts. What a wonderful fanciful story! Alice certainly had an imagination that I wish I had. Along with that Alice has courage to challenge the norms of society and not follow the crowd. I admire this trait. However, Absolom has a quiet wisdom that I also admire and that wisdom enabled him to morph into a beautiful butterfly and lead Alice on her new adventure.

    I have to say I love the three inch high, Blue Caterpillar. I have always wondered “what exactly is in that hookah”? Over 20 years ago, I may or may not have tried to smoke a certain type of hookah, and tried to exhale the letters AEIOU…
    Don’t judge me, it was eons ago, (never-the-less a very fun time in my life).

    Behaving myself (somewhat),

  • Sunny Steinmetz

    My favorite character is the white rabbit–I love his chant of I’m late, I’m late, I’m late. . . .

  • Fiona Hill

    I LOVE Alice in Wonderland. And I love creating imagery from the clever text. Your watercolour course would be AWESOME!!

    ‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to…..” Cheshire cat is my favourite! He’s such a clever cat!! As I’m getting older I’m learning how far a good grin can get you!

  • Fiona Hill

    I LOVE Alice in Wonderland. In fact I wrote a blog post about it here.

    ‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’

  • Cristin

    My favorite character is the cheshire cat. He is both bright and curious. He is wonderful and wise, and mischievous.

  • Jill Evans

    I would have to say my favourite character is The Mad Hatter, because after Johnny Depp’s portrayal of him, you really have to agree that he was the most charismatic person and his quirky thoughts always had an element of. Truth in them. I love to be around people who are different because they make the world a better place.

  • Jane W.

    Alice and Cheshire cat are tied for my favorite character. Alice for her curious nature and Cheshire cat because he’s both mysterious and mischievous (just as a cat would be). I loved both Disney versions (the cartoon and the live-action film) and the original books! There’s a fun Syfy adaptation called “Alice” which is a favorite of mine too. Really I’ve loved all things Alice for as long as I can remember.

  • Kim mcdonald

    The White Rabbit is close to my heart.Determined to be on time but yet always behind. I can relate. lol

  • Autumn Tax

    I choose the Queen of Hearts because she’s so crazy and is quick to yell “off with his head!!” And then doesn’t even notice that the same fella pops up in he back of her court (only on the Disney version maybe?) every time so she’s really not killing anyone but still having the satisfaction of yelling! Kinda reminds me of motherhood in a way.
    I love the Disney version too…also like watching it to Pink Floyd, so nutty!

  • Lonny Clouser

    I’ve always liked Alice herself. I’ve always really enjoyed the idea of reading and going somewhere else (falling down a rabbit hole!!).

    I also really like the Disney version of Alice. The Disney artists’ created a character who felt “right.” I did enjoy Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, though.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a scholarship to your workshop. It looks fantastic! I’d love to participate!! 😀

  • Joanna Kelley

    O.K., as a hardcore Davenpeep, I am already in the class, but I have to throw my two cents in on this issue. I just love the Red Queen. She so crazy. I haven’t met that many people who reminded me of the Cheshire Cat or the Dormouse, but I would venture to say that everybody knows a Red Queen, or two, or several. Most of us are related to, or have worked with at least one. The Red Queen is so marvelously dictatorial and ridiculously demanding, she can never be pleased, yet everyone runs around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to make her happy. Which is, of course, impossible. Occasionally, I have moments where I’d just love to go Red Queen on EVERYBODY and scream: “Off with their heads!!!”. I’d be completely ignored (or given medication) but there are people in this world who approach Red Queen behavior and for some ridiculous reason, people bend over backwards trying to please them. My question is: How does the Red Queen get everyone to do that? How does someone so obviously “off-their-throne” get people/creatures to bend over backwards trying to make them happy, when they so obviously will never be happy??? What’s her secret? Plus, you’ve got to love a character whose tag line is: “Off with their heads!”. So my vote is for the Red Queen because she is just so full-tilt insane.

    My favorite version of “Alice in Wonderland” is the Disney cartoon. I never read Alice as a child, but was in college when I saw the Disney version, with that marvelous Mary Blair artwork. Those colors! I’ve been in love with “Alice” ever since.

  • Theresa Miers

    Oh, the Mad Hatter for sure because he is deleriously eccentric, not just merely eccentric. And I loved the table setting. Tea party, anyone?

  • Camilla Randall

    The ‘Red Queen” of course – I love a strong female character even if they are mad. I know a few mad queens myself-fabulous fun! Not to keen about the head chopping though- But I always like to see the good in people…he..he!!!

  • Barbara A

    The Mad Hatter of course. Thanks Jane this art class seems incroyable!

  • Lisa

    Would have to say I relate to the white rabbit, always feeling like I am running behind and having to continually play catch up, I love your art and i hope to one day soon take one of your classes because Your art truly is inspiring….Feel better dear

  • Lura Brown

  • Marlene Vega

    Cheshire cat……I’m not crazy my reality is just different than yours 🙂

  • Jill Wood

    I like the Disney version best – it reminds me of my childhood, and I adore the dormouse, who is as chilled out and dreamy as I aspire to be!

  • Diana Hofmann

    I have to say I love the Cheshire cat character and I too love the Disney animation of this story. Thank you for the opportunity to win a scholarship! Glad you’re feeling better.

  • Mónica Silva

    My favorite character is Alice, because I can ser in her a little bit of me. She’s a dreamer, curious, a child and a woman , a believer, creative, with hope and a desire to know more, a learner, she has fears , but she’s brave like only those who know to face their fears .
    She has the curiosity and lhe bravery of an artist.

  • Maureen Vandeusen

    By far the Cheshire Cat. Love the mischievous behavior and look. Also love his cool clothes!

  • Patti klein

    Posted last night in the wrong place. I think I caught your virus!!! My favorite character is Alice because she is the vehicle for all of the wisdom and learning and experiences about life in this great book. I would appreciate a scholarship.

  • Heather Basson

    I just love the hare, The Mad Hatter. I am 66 years old and my grandfather used to read to us and Alice in wonderland was my favorite . I can still hear his voice and imagining what all the characters looked like, because way back in the 1950s there was not much visuals/ pictures., so one had to use your imagination. I still have the book and it is a real treasure. He was so different and not afraid to be that and I took a feather out of his”hat” and enjoy just being who I am.

  • Dawn Williams

    Hi Jane , I would have to say …with much enthusiasm – Alice!I love her questions and the way she sees life. How she never sees it as others do. I have quote form the book on my wall. I am inspired by her wonder – have written about it. I think if your lost in life – its usually because you lose your wonder. What I live by, so excited for your class. I think it will be a blessing to all!

  • Christy

    My favorite is the Cheshire Cat! I just love his look. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Samantha

    I love the Mad Hatter. Who wouldn’t love someone that hosts the most fabulous tea parties! I really love the Disney animated versions the best because that’s what I grew up watching, but I do adore the Tim Burton version. The scenery is just amazing! I saw it in the theaters in 3D when it first came out and it was fabulous!

  • Jill Evan

    I have to admit that my favourite character is the Mad Hatter, only because I am so swayed by Johnny Depp’s portrayal of him . I love that the Mad Hatter is so quirky, and I love to be around people that are so different in our world, and make us stop and think, with the end result that they make us smile. What a wonderful quality to have in life. You are truly gifted if you can create and bring joy to people’s lives.

  • Robyn Brooks

    My favourite is whimsical Alice. I still adore Disney animation.

  • Andrea thompson

    I can not decide between the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat! Love them both, well…..there’s reasons to pick every character… Too much pressure in trying to make an actual choice. But thanks for the chance to win a spot in your workshop!

  • Michelle Grant

    Would have to be Mad Hatter with Johnny Depp 🙂
    “we are all mad here ;)”
    I want to go and watch the movie again now, been a few years! 🙂
    Thank you 🙂 xx


    Definitely Alice and definitely the original book version! I identify with Alice because her experiences are a bit like mine. In Swedish “Wonderland” is translated “The land Under” and I sort of ended up there during a period of my life. I felt myself falling down a dark hole , just like Alice did, being faced with all sorts of strange things that seemed weird and hard to understand. I have now come back to what I call Wonderland, a life full of opportunities, hope and joy. When I look back at my experiences in “Underland” I understand that they have made me appreciate the “Wonderland” I’m now living in. My nickname is Ullis and I plan to call this drawing adventure “Ullis in Wonderland” using it as a celebration of my new life.
