Edward Lear + Lewis Carroll

  ¤  Edward Lear  [1812-1888]

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.”

←[poem]

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

ω  Adventures in Beauty Wonderland ←

One of Japan’s foremost pop artists, Keiichi Tanaami, presents a joyfully psychedelic animation inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, unveiling an underworld of kaleidoscopic cosmetics in the form of perfectly made-up third-eyes and chirping lipstick butterflies.  Tanaami’s resulting Alice takes a trip through an imagined world of beauty and artistic fancy, crossing over into a landscape populated by 100 creatures.
