'Bollywood Dreams' by Kunel Gaur
Artist Kunel Gaur is the founder of creative agency Animal and his work will soon be available on Kulture Shop. He imagines a Bollywood ending for Alice, with a (stereotypical) hero in the White Rabbit. Kunelgaur.com

'The Saffron Queen' by Janine Shroff

'The Rush-Hour Race' by Tasneem Amiruddin
