David Hall Story Art Stills - Alice Encounters the Cheshire Cat

I'm missing at least 15 still in the series between last post and this one.  At long last Alice encounters the Cheshire Cat, at first only his head as depicted in this detailed drawing.  Difficult to read here, but this is labeled '66' and is reproduced in the David Hall book.
Alice gazes up at her strange companion in his equally strange environs in this watercolor, labeled '67'.  Unfortunately this is not reproduced, I would love to see this one in color.
Alice appears to be receiving advice from her cat companion here, as he begins to disappear.  Labeled '68', this is reproduced in the David Hall book.

Some of the stills you are missing - or yet to show - include the Cheshire Cat scaring the dog who wants to play with Alice from the book and the scenario with the White Rabbit's house - which, I presume actually shows us how David portrays MaryAnne (unless that is actually moved to later, like the Gryphon/Mock-Turtle).

But there are still some pictures in the David Hall book that you can scan and show.

I've been following this blog for a while now, checking once or twice a week for updates and I Really LIKE this collection! Thanks for sharing!

I love the image of the Cheshire Cat's head, and that second illustration looks amazing even in black and white! Imagine how it must look in color.
