The King of Hearts
Royalty is the theme of this week's edition of Wonderland Wednesdays. Here is my version of the King of Hearts. This guy was featured in STUFFED magazine's Winter 2010 issue, as well as the "Go Ask Alice" art show, along with his wife, the Queen of Hearts.
The King likes to sneak off and go fishing when he can- it gives him a respite from all the drama that comes with being married to the Queen. ;D
Aside from all the obvious hearts on his Royal Highness here, I made his mustache slightly heart shaped as a more subtle continuation of the hearts theme, as well as adding a heart shaped buckle to his belt.
Here is a rare photo of the King with Alice, it was taken quickly while the Queen was distracted. We are all aware that she needs to be the center of attention at all times, and woe betide those who steal her thunder. I felt lucky to get this photo taken without her finding out. ;D
The King will be available in my etsy shop later today, and his wife will follow sometime in the next little while, so stay tuned!
