    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.

    Alice in Wonderland by Gianluca Maruotti

    Being an Alice in Wonderland aficionado, I've seen the Lewis Carroll characters be interpreted in different kinds of mediums: illustrations, animations, films, plush toys, paintings, etc. But this is the first time I came across an Alice in Wonderland piece in plasticine. Plasticine is actually a brand of modelling clay which is putty-like (A generic term for plastic but with a similar texture to dough. Thank you, Wiki!)


    This somehow reminds me of some of the characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I thought of the Mayor when I saw the Mad Hatter in this one. And ever since I saw the Alice in Wonderland (1951) movie, I always had this terrified feeling about the film but still I really loved it, and I think this was a good depiction of the expressions of the characters and the characters themselves, and the colors are fantastic! (There was something quite malicious with the Cheshire Cat's grin, something scary about the Caterpillar, and I have always been bothered by the story of The Walrus and The Carpenter.)



    Before I babble too much about Alice in Wonderland, let me mention that this amazing plasticine sculpture was made by Gianluca Maruotti. He is a freelance illustrator, puppet maker and stop motion animator/director based in Rome, Italy. He also makes animated videos for cinema, TV and musicians, as well as editorial illustrations and picture books, mainly using plasticine.
