I finally started working on the illustrations for Chapter X – The Lobster-Quadrille.
It took so long to get this chapter going because quite frankly college was ruining my life, mainly by sapping my energy. Chapter IX was a lot of work and sort of put me off the project for a bit, which is frustrating.
Therefore, in the name of goodness and sanity, I’m going to cut a lot of corners starting with Chapter X. I’m going to try to have fewer illustrations, for one, and I’m not going to try to set a deadline. Since I hate them anyway.
Lewis Carroll’s birthday is tomorrow, and I’m searching through the Complete Works of Lewis Carroll for a poem to read for it, for I wo’n’t have Chapter X done by then.
I have edited the audio for Chapter X – The Lobster-Quadrille.
It’s about 14 minutes long. I hope to have the Chapter done by Lewis Carroll’s birthday.
Also, you will find that the Project Carroll Mock-Turtle ca’n’t hold a tune. I will make sure Alice’s face reflects that.
All 390 of them! To celebrate, here is one that echoes John Tenniel:
The Chapter will be ready soon, and when it is complete, those clouds will move!
“It’s all her fancy that: they never executes nobody, you know.”
Happy fourth of July! In addition to being the American independence day, it’s also the day that the story that became Alice in Wonderland was first told. To celebrate, here’s the first illustration featuring the Gryphon for Chapter IX of Project Carroll.
