Red: Seasons and Process
Information about the Red project and image of all illustrations together under the cut:
The seasons show the progression of Red's existence within the forest, and coming to terms with the Wolf. I wanted these illustrations to be very non-threatening, as in many interpretations of the story
(read: chopping things and blood). I also wanted the Wolf to not only be seen as huge and terrifying. And when it was not, Red could learn to live along side it. The two additional images are as Red is accepted more into the world, and ultimately becoming a part of it.
For the prints of these images, the colors will probably be different with three sets of paper colors, one set for "Fall" and "Summer", one set for "Winter" and "Spring" and one set for the two additional prints, the colors of ink will also be different, I also am going to print a set of black and whites.
Because of the format of the last two images, I might make the bottom right one longer than it was made, which is really much more like the original sketch.
