This was one of the very first books I did when I joined Bright Agency. A cute little version of the classic Little Red Riding Hood.
I went for a cute, cozy sort of feel for this one while trying to still portray a sense of forboding and danger—as far as the wolf was concerned. I seem to remember being asked to ease up on showing his sharp teeth so often;)
I had great fun with the characters. This Lumberjack was paerticularly fun. I used Michael Palin and his ”I’m a Lumberjack” skit in Monty Python as a reference. Same outfit! Nice to put in some Canadiana.
Speaking of… that’s a Hudson’s Bay blanket on the bed. Also typically Canuck.
Coming up with interior of Grandmother’s house was also fun. I think it’s a bit Nordic- and so very colour-coordinated!
Yup. Cozy. Cute.
Little Red Riding Hood.
