I've started my final project in Studio for the semester and it involves the Wizard of Oz in no small way. Right now I can't get over the beautiful illustrations in the original L. Frank Baum series. I chose this studio after the professor did a presentation on what it entailed, which included this quote :

“I was the only child in the audience that always wondered why Dorothy ever wanted to go back to Kansas. Why would she want to go back to Kansas, in this dreary black and white farm with an aunt who dressed badly and seemed mean to me, when she could live with magic shoes, winged monkeys and gay lions. I never understood it.”
- John Waters, 2001

... and I was instantly sold :)
