First of all, I'd like to say that I only feel lukewarm about this illustrator/concept artist's body of work as a whole. However, I was immediately drawn to this image, which was created for an illustration contest. On his deviantArt page, the artist has titled the piece "Alice in Wonderland", and I think it is a great and original take on that theme, even if it is difficult to make the connection initially. With linework that looks like a nod to Yoshitaka Amano, and a vaguely Miyazaki-esque setting, there is an immediate charm to this piece that made it irresistible to me. The color scheme creates a mood that is warm and inviting, and though there are some slightly grotesque (admittedly, very cutesy grotesque) elements that have been worked in as well, they don't feel out of place in this world. Plus, as someone who is interested in concept art as a whole, I really like Alice's design. I think this is just a very successful piece overall.
