Little Red Riding Hood

Here is my main portfolio project that I did over my summer break, redesigning Little Red Riding Hood.
I placed the story within the culture of the Hopi Indian tribe and their villages in the Arizona desert. My design inspiration came from the tribe’s art, in particular their Kachina dolls which are the spirits that rule over various aspects of the tribe’s life. This can be seen particularly in the designs for the Wolf and Huntsman.
I had a lot of fun with this project especially in the research phase, learning about the Hopi Indians and their culture.
