New work - Dorothy & Billina




This piece was partly inspired by one of my favourite childhood movies "Return to Oz". 
Probably not the best movie to watch as a 5 year old. Still to this day I have nightmares about the Wheelers and heads in glass cabinets.

  2. OH MY GOD!!! I read the title on twitter and was like 'THE CHICKEN?!'
    Love it.
    The Wheelers STILL freak me out. Their giggling. *shiver*
    Mombi was horrible, and when she played the lady in the asylum!?
    Ugh. So much to love about this movie, it was so dark and twisted.
    It took me a while to accept that it had nothing to do with the happy musical Judy version! Haha.

  3. Nice one Bec :) x
    Ha I love it to bits. For a long time I forgot I had seen it when I was little and spent years thinking I had a bad dream about a girl escaping from an asylum and running through the woods.

  4. Haha that's so funny. I used to want the lunch pails.
    Did you ever watch the anime version that used to be on in the mornings?
    I found it on DVD a few years ago. Ohhh such a blast from the past. It's amazing how much comes flooding back!

  5. These are amazing! I love the movie too, always have since I was little. I loved the wheelers, it was the talking moose that framed me out as a child!

  6. No! I never saw it Kel. How could I have missed that? Was probably watching "It's a Knockout!" instead.
