Oh, ‘Tis a wondrous day to be undead in Wonderland! Perhaps Alice has chased one too many rabbits as she has fallen victim to a Zombie virus that has invaded and infected her beloved Wonderland. In this illustration, I depict what might happen were a zombie viral outbreak to creep its way into the Lewis Carroll classic. While it is obvious that young Alice and her Caterpillar pal have joined the undead masses, I feel that the Cheshire Cat would be above such a nightmarish fate. I chose to render the mad, fantasy feline lazing about, brandishing his infamous grin, as he remains unaffected and gleefully watching the other Wonderland characters experiencing a whole new type of madness. Zombie subject matter is commonly depicted in darkened tones using a muted color palette. For “Zombie Alice” I chose to keep the trademark bright, wacky Wonderland color scheme in order to emphasize that this is happening in Wonderland and to show the vast contrast between the worlds. I also felt that if the scenic tones were too muted, the illustration might have seemed more like a zombie dressed as Alice than Alice becoming a zombie. I also chose to downplay the usually grotesque zombie characteristics of rotting flesh in favor of using figure posture, skin color, and other more subtle cues that our dear Alice is now a walking corpse.
