The beginning

Where to start, where to start. I know it has been a while since I updated my blog but don't fear there is lots to come! For now this will be one of my larger projects. I have been looking into agents for a while and now I need a up to date manuscript to send out and show my skills. I can't exactly use anything I created in school because I spent so much time developing a new style. For my first attempt at a book in literally a year I decided to use a Grimm's fairy tale to help my style fit into a book format. I'll deal with my own stories when I get back into the rhythm of illustrating.

I am retelling the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Here's examples of books I looked into. The styles and ideas were all very different. My own is a bit odd from the original but I really didn't see the point of retelling it word by word. Also I can finally use my collaged wolf as one of the main characters. My thumbs are also put up but good luck reading them. Hopefully I can get the story written up by tonight and have a photo shoot within the next few weeks.


  1. What time/decade/era would your story take place? I am trying to read all your notes!

  2. Hahaha, well I can always send you the story when I write it out. Its probably less then a page. Im not sure about era because its a bed and breakfast with a gypsy chill in in their backyard. I should make it 1980's just because. The little girl will be named marisol ;D
