Curiouser and Curiouser

This image caught my eye because of the reference to time, but the more I become absorbed in the background, the lighting and shadows, the more it speaks to me. I've tried to locate the artist to no avail. For me, it brings a relevance and sense of the present to what I had always dismissed as a Lewis Carrol's drug-induced euphoria.

Still in the rabbit hole of edits...

The young girl with her stuffed toy sees the dark world of growing up after leaving her childhood of light. Some of the images invoke sadness and peril at the whims of men. She needs to keep a sense of light with her while maturing.

It looks Japanese to me, but the chop looks English/American. I hope you're able to find the artist.

Good luck with the edits. Go, L.A, go!!! Woot!!!

The thing about rabbit holes is they always have more than a single exit.

Because I am not doing edits I tried to find some info on the graphic too, alas no success.

This a great image, L.A. Good luck finding the artist.

I also loved the post on romance heroes from last Friday. You hit the nail on the head.

Hope your Valentine's Day was a good one.

Barbara...it *is* such a strong commentary on the pressures of growing up. Alice's wonderland might have been safer.

Pam...you, too. I want an edit update soon!

Maureen...every time I look at it, another detail comes to the forefront.

laughingwolf...great to see you again :)

walkingman...thanks so much for trying to find out something about it. And, actually, my rabbit hole does have two very different endings. Which one will I choose?

Jen...thank you so much. I hope your V-day was super, too :)

Katie...thanks :)

Vesper...glad you liked it.

Kristen...great to see you here. Thanks for stopping by.

Follow the cigarette smoke...it is leading to the breeze and fresh air.

There's an "email me" link here where I bet you could find out the artist's details:
