Working a Terrible Soul-less Job for THE MAN? Crippled by Fear of the Recession and UNEMPLOYMENT?

This one started as a quick sketch just to keep myself from forgetting the concept. Then it got a little more detailed. Then it got scanned. Then the composition got tweaked in Photoshop. Then it got coloured. And now, here we are. One of these days, I'll take a screenprinting course, and make editions available. You know. As art. Very depressing art about losing one's soul to corporate drudgery.
I'm a huge fan of Penguin Books, in no small part because of their fantastic design heritage. In fact, I own more than a few books about the Penguin's design process and their covers. Understandably, I was quite thrilled to discover that Penguin is now offering editions of classic books with blank covers, a promotion called My Penguin.
This past Christmas, for one of L's gifts, I drew up a cover for one of her favourite books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Given that I've always known/ called the book "Alice in Wonderland" (doesn't everybody?), I designed the typography to reflect the more commonly known title.
