The Mad Hatter by fayrenpickpocket The Mad Hatter by fayrenpickpocket
My... special take on Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter. <3

An overdone subject, I'm sure, but I dont care. ;D My tablemates and I wanted to do a series of loli-goth Alice and Wonderland prints... and it sounded like fun. <3

I tried to put a unique spin on it, anyway. Did you know that the phrase "Mad as a Hatter" came from the overexposure to mercury used to make top hats? I had no idea. I learned this while doing some research before drawing. The exposure over the years eventually gave them Mercury Poisoning, and while the Mad Hatter in the book did NOT have the illness, I thought it might be interesting to portray a Mad Hatter that was more timid and suffered from anxiety.

I've also been inspired to pay more attention to fabrics and cloth... so this was a fashion experiment. ;D I usually skimp on the clothes because I enjoy painting skin so much more. .___.

This is a normal Sunday for me... My dad walks in on me all the time and asks me: "Have you gone mad?!"
Me: "Bonkers..." *keeps pouring soda*

Ah, a TRUE sign of total lunacy: looking bored with life itself while pouring tea with your feet.

Sincerely yours,
