Illustration Friday: Imagination

Hey everyone!
I haven't done and IF in a few weeks due to some other projects that have been taking up my time (to which I will post about soon) but here is my latest piece that I've created. I am not sure where this idea came from, but its my own sort of take on Little Red Riding Hood. What if it was all a game in the wolf's mind and these where just his play things? Or maybe in his reality, people are not more threat than just bugs? Either way, I think this little bad wolf is using his imagination. That is to say if he is bad at all...

I forgot to mention I've been watching all lot of Twin Peaks lately and I think its creeping into my children's books illustration. I'm taking it as a good thing- and perfect company for my Woodland illustrations! Thanks for looking!

Love it! What a great idea. And I love that the fox is in a dapper suit. Twin Peaks would definitely make things a bit stranger!

haha, Twin Peaks is always a good thing :)
At least it looks like he just wants to play instead of eating them.
Wonderful work!

Wicked wolf's mind :) Very nice idea!

This is so clever. I love his perfectly tailed suit. He looks like a very good little mummy's boy but with lots of naughty bad wolf thoughts swimming around his head. Love it!

Beautiful...I love his snazzy jacket and tie, and the way that you "grounded" the image with the oval of olive-colored grass.
