"if you drink much from a bottle marked 'poison', it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later."

I've always had a strong fascination with the story of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland. There was something very unsettling about that strange world, and it made me uneasy. A while back I created a few drawings based on the story of A Christmas Carol, but put it in a Sci-Fi horror setting. Since I love that genre so much I decided to give it another go. I created this image to not totally spell out "Alice in Wonderland", but rather keep things subtle with references and easter eggs (except for the "eat" and "drink" canisters). I wanted people to look at it and not know right away what it was referencing, but at the same time be somewhat familiar. Sort of like what Alice was feeling once she went down the rabbit hole.
