little red cover


I was watching a lovely Zhang Yimou film called 'The Road Home', with lots of birch trees and colourful jackets. I just made the heroine a little younger and gave her a hood.

Nice birches! I like that peeled bark effect. And I'm still fascinated by what you do with faces; the way minimal elements can combine to produce real character and expression.

Nice image! And yes... did you use a photoshop pattern tool to make all the leaves?

Re: Picture Books
Thanks, Sue! I might do a little red book sometime, but there are already so many out there! Do you think the market could hold another? My classmate Alex is doing one at the moment, and his is amazing! I also really love the French version illustrated by Frederick Mansot, 'Le petit Chaperon rouge'.

Re: Picture Books
Hey, thanks for that link! (Isn't it one of the most gorgeous books ever?! And the Van Gogh references made me laugh.) There is (French) text in the version I bought. I'm amazed someone hasn't published it in English here. But you're right, it works without text.
