Alice is about to jump down into that (rather scary-looking) rabbit hole, and she hopes you'll join her for the adventure.
Down the Rabbit Hole We Go ↳ 🕳
The idea is simple:
In every piece there is a hole or portal of some kind. Within that portal another world is seen, slightly hidden behind the veiling light. Alice then jumps into the portal, and finds herself in that new world - the new piece. She journeys around, searching for the next portal, always eager to see just how far the rabbit hole goes, and what new worlds are waiting to be discovered.
The first piece "Down the Rabbit Hole with Alice the Rabbit" will be a free-to-claim open edition with no deadline. It will stay open and be free-to-mint for whoever wants to own an edition, forever. When it and other pieces becomes available, you'll find their minting links by scrolling to the very bottom of this page.
The "Down the Rabbit Hole" series of pieces will be a mixture of all kinds: Open editions, Limited Editions, holders-only editions, 1/1s with bidder edition, etc.
I won't reveal too much, but I will say that the next piece (the one you see above) will be an open edition for 0.01 Ethereum.
With this series of works I am trying to draw a simple metaphor with a huge new technology that has taken the world by storm:
It has opened up a deep rabbit hole with unknown mysteries down its tunnels. Society has leapt enthusiastically into the rabbit hole, with no guarantee of being able to return, eager to discover the new worlds it promises.
On the very-much-smaller scale that is only me - one person - it has had great affect: Using A.I. was the only way I could have created the pieces in this collection as they are, without taking many, many years to master the skill of painting. I have also begun coding again; a talent, long lost in my past, that probably would have remained buried had ChatGPT not helped me to begin again at 10x the pace it would have taken me with Google, and StackOverflow, etc.
The idea for this series of work is to see what A.I. can do all by itself - thus I intend to keep editing down to a minimum. It is certainly necessary though, sometimes, as you can see below. Our dear Alice's face was a little deformed originally. And of course, editing is required to add in the scenes within the rabbit holes (or portals), and Alice herself in every piece except the first one.
Down the Rabbit Hole we go!
Alice the Rabbit

Hello, stranger. You're a curious one, aren't you?
As you can see, I stand on the edge. And since you're so curious, I'd like to invite you to join me, for I'm about to jump in. I'm sure you must think it a great idea, to join me down the rabbit hole to discover what adventures await. But beware... Rabbit holes are infamously mysterious and treacherous and most certainly, I am more prepared than you are to face what lies hidden in the depths. Still, I would welcome the company and if enough of you join me, we'd probably make a formidable force... Are you ready?
