Guess who finished all her college applications!! :)
Red came from an assignment where I was prompted to create a piece inspired by another artist. I chose Virginia Frances Sterrett as my muse, one of my favorite female artists from the Golden Age of Illustration. Since she only illustrated fairy tales, I similarly decided to illustrate one: Little Red Riding Hood. This color palette is a lot more subdued than hers probably would have been, but I really wanted red to be the only color. The circles took forever, so I’m guessing this took around 60 hours give or take, using micron pens and a colored pencil on 18x24 toned paper.
