This is an old drawing, soft pastel on black paper. The subject is the Big Bad Wolf from “Red Riding Hood,” after (mostly) consuming Grandmother and then slipping into her bed.
I still have this one around and it’s even creepier in person. Email me if you’re interested!
I did this work in 2013 for my “Patchwork Dragon” solo show in November 2013. The show version had pages from my childhood personal diaries collaged around the edges to form a border. After its debut at the show, this piece with the diary page collage was auctioned off by The Literacy Center to raise money to help adults learn to read. I picked this piece especially because of the title “Love Letter” and the diary entries attached to it. It seemed the most perfect piece I had for a literacy auction.
It’s sold now to a generous supporter, but this teaser I did for the Patchwork Dragon Show shows some of the diary collage on the original piece:
Love Letter without the collage is on Society6||Redbubble.
