Camille Rose Garcia Interprets Alice. [art in LA]

Want to turn an old children’s book into a nationwide sensation? Apparently all one needs to do is ask Tim Burton to step in. The 3-D theatrical release of Alice in Wonderland--out now--has created such a frenzy that you’d suspect we’d all gone down the rabbit hole ourselves and lost our bloody minds. From Alice inspired marketing campaigns to games and toys, it’s all of a sudden all about Alice.

Out of all the recent Alice hype, one interpretation of the iconic story (originally created by Lewis Carroll in 1865) has emerged as a clear and beautiful winner. Camille Rose Garcia, the LA based artist known for her work in the lowbrow art scene, was asked in 2009 to illustrate a new Alice in Wonderland book by Harper Collins. The result is a gorgeous, watercolor masterpiece.

Watch a behind the scenes of Garcia’s creation.

Garcia's exhibit of her work will be on display at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in LA starting tomorrow. Don't miss a look at this new Alice.
