Graphic Novel

My M.F.A. thesis project, Red Hood, is a hand-lettered retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood” whose visual style calls upon comics, illuminated manuscripts and children’s activity books. I strove to create a true integration of text and image throughout, putting to use my skills in layout, hand-drawn typography, pattern design and botanical illustration. The ornately designed pages feature paper dolls, baroque patterning, chemistry (both organic and romantic), lycanthropy and fear of the Other.
