(Not so) Little Red Riding Hood - Photo Manipulation


I love fairy tales and have been reading fairy tales since I was little and I use a lot of themes from them in my writing. Sometimes I like to wonder what happened to them after the tale finished... this is my interpretion of Little Red Riding Hood all grown up with her tame wolf.

Heart World - Photo Manipulation (Secret Series)

This is the latest illustration in my Secret Keeper/Secret in the Wall series:

It was created completely with my own images/textures/brushes. I first made a 'topography' using many layers of images all mixed up and 'cut' each planet from this topography before arranging it on a background and editing it to give it a 3D feel.

There are also two new installments in the story line: 
The Secret Keeper Part IV: Chosen
The Secret in the Wall (Part VI) and The Secret Keeper Part V: A Promise Kept

The latter story is where the two story lines come together. :-)

The Story so far:

New Calendar: Love Bullets

This is a collaboration with PhilosophyLee and myself.

I love his sometimes apparently simple and obvious and at other times confounding but always thought provoking writings.

This is the calendar called Love Bullets I’ve created with some of my favourites of his ‘Love Bullets’ as he calls his writings.

The images from the calendar can be see on my Redbubble site.

Kate - Photo Manipulation

 Inspired by Shakespeare's Taming the Shrew.

Kate is another of my favourite heroines. I love her spirit and passion.
Here's a quote to get you in the mood:

You are called plain Kate,
And bonny Kate and sometimes Kate the curst;
But Kate, the prettiest Kate in Christendom
Kate of Kate Hall, my super-dainty Kate,
For dainties are all Kates, and therefore, Kate,
Take this of me, Kate of my consolation.
(The Taming of the Shrew, 2. 1)

Part of my Shakespeare's Heroines series


All other images and textures are my own.
