Childeren's book illustration

As part of a school assignment we had to create a fitting illustration for a childeren's book. The story we had to illustrate was the classic story of Alice in Wonderland. Everybody had to design a differt part of the book and I was assigned to visualise the part where Alice meets the mysterious and rather rude caterpillar on a giant mushroom while smooking hooka.

For this project I wanted to step away from the existing image of Alice in Wonderland and I wanted to create a totally different style. I used a collage-technique to create different kinds of surfaces and textures. The result was photographed and edited in photoshop to create the right colors and atmosphere.
