Illustration Daily – Day 109: Little Red Riding Hood

The idea for this one comes from the concept of the topsy-turvy doll. “Little Red Riding Hood” is one of the great enduring cautionary stories for children. First published by Charles Perrault in 1697, the folktale “Little Red Riding Hood” was later adapted by the Grimm Brothers and countless others. However, the tale has deep roots in many cultures, a literary example of convergent evolution, with versions stemming from Africa, and Asia.
