The Footmen (Alice in Wonderland)

In 2008, when Templar published their collector's classic edition of Alice in Wonderland, Matthews achieved his lifelong ambition to illustrate the most well known children's story ever written.  He had waited for this opportunity since the age of six, ever since his sister Beryl had taken him to see the Walt Disney movie in 1951. Matthews' "wonderland" is sinister, capturing the essence of Lewis Carroll's tale.  In addition to the many coloured pieces, fourteen pencil drawings were also featured in the book.  

This illustration is a good example of the way Matthews combines human with creature.  Definitely a pike and a frog, but with human stance and characteristics.
