The Jabberwock... Lewis Carrol's chittering-chattering nonesense speaking dragon, reinterpreted with a very Clive Barker sensability.
This was an idea that spawned in my head through conversation with
when I randomly blurted out Jabberwock. There's quite a lot that went into this and lot perversion. When I thought of the 'Wock, my mind instantly turned to those jabbering, gnashing teeth, whcih then reminded me of Chatterer from Hellraiser. I took it and went from there. It is an eyeless beast, with it's face and lips bound in nails and barbed wire. It's body scared and impaled time and time again, remenant of those who had failed before left in it's battered, corpulent hide. It has those malformed, vetigil arms, and those twisted fat legs, and those unnaturall cloven hooves. And King Ghidora wings.
Also, that is in fact meant to be Monty Python's own Black Knight in the background, dangling from the toppled tree. It's my own little send up to Terry Gilliam's own movie Jabberwocky. It's only a fleshwound. Alice, while really damn generic, was in fact inspired by an old 1983-85 movie that featured a scary as all living hell Jabberwocky, and Alice was, like, this REALLY young girl, which I felt really pushed how creepy and alarming Wonderland really is.
And there's something that just disturbs me greatly by juxtaposing this Jabberwock with little innocent Alice, and I like it. On one hand I feel like a sick sonuvabitch, on the other... well... a sick sonuvabitch. Which is why I'm also giving this a mature content lable. Read into it, I dare you.
Dedicated most unceremoniously to
who couldn't inspire me more to draw more fucked up material.
