My inspiration began for this drawing when thinking about The White Rabbit from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and the Disney song, "I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!" My original idea was to make the Rabbit the central missing figure for this piece, but as the idea evolved through sketches and preliminary work I decided to make Alice the missing figure, while the Rabbit and the Hatter are left waiting for her arrival.

Inspired by: "I'm Late" from Alice in Wonderland

Andrea Bills has been interested in the arts since childhood, but began to want to pursue it as a career in high school. She spent ten years working as a freelance artist, and in 2012 discovered the Language of Drawing Program on Facebook. After working through the curriculum at home, she wanted to take the next step and further her education by becoming a full-time apprentice with Anthony Waichulis.
