Little Red Riding Hood

Each year SCBWI has an illustration contest called the Tomie dePaola award. Mr. Tomie chooses a topic then each illustrator comes up with an original piece of art. I found out about this years award a little late, but decided to give it a shot anyway.

The topic was 'Little Red Riding Hood.' Our assignment was to wow him. That's a pretty tough thing to do since Red Riding Hood has been done over and over again. Before you get too excited, no, I didn't win. (At least I don't think so. I guess we'll find out later.)

Anyway, I just want to show you what I came up with. It was a fun project to work on.
