Mr. Robinson seemed to use different styles...so you have your pick. He also did some wonderful black and white pictures.

I forget the name of this illustration...so I'll just call it Bird Girl. Pen and ink in sketch book.

Charles Robinson did some remarkable work. Here's my take on Alice's Adventures. Kind of messed up on the background but loved doing this one.

A good one Inky...I like the background with that one touch of color. We all still love Alice. :heart:
