Little Red Riding Hood

Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
A spooky take on any classic fairy tale.

How was the illustration used:
Portfolio development piece and promotional campaign

How did you make this work:
I wanted to show the looming, oppressive feeling of the wolf, without showing the wolf itself, so I depicted its extremely large shadow on the trees. I wanted little red to be the only real colourful element. I deliberately created the trees like 'prison bars', to show little red trapped in the forest, and then had some warm light coming in from the edge for a little bit of hope.
