Dylan Garner

Great packaging and a great idea for someone instead of cookies...unless they are chocolate chip.
See more work on Dylan Garner's site.

Alice in Wonderland book art by Janae Breunig

During my visit to watch my son perform a recital at the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire, I ducked into the student gallery. I had forgotten how fun it is to see student work and all the expression and freedom in each project. 

I imagine there was an assignment to take a book and create meaning out of it.  I came across this Alice in wonderland book which was so exciting to open. It was done by Janae Breunig and is called "Alice's Nonsensical Adventure in Wonderland"

First you open the book to a hole, I imagine it is the rabbits hole.

As you flip through the book the pages are carefully cut out to create dimension and create a three dimensional image.

 Using the line "But I don't want to go among mad people" it appears the artist selected certain illustrations to highlight the story.
