Well, you're right about the story being sinister, at any rate.

In one of the original versions of the story, after encountering the wolf disguised as Grandmother Little Red Riding Hood is tricked into eating her grandmother's flesh and drinking her grandmother's blood (being told they were meat and wine), and then told take off her clothes and get into bed with the wolf.

Creepy? Check. Sinister? Check.

Red RidingHood is pretty creepy.  I have heard that the wolf is supposed to represent a old man.  Have you heard anything about this?

I don't know how many Red Riding Hoods I have done but it's at least 5.  I believe I have created 3 oil paintings and now 2 prints. This character fascinates me.
Sometimes I feel like the reason I created images of this character over and over is because I don't ever get it just right.

I've been creating a print series called The Doom Girls.  Unlike the charactor Emily, these girls are not so much evil as they are brats.  I think we can all relate to brats.
I trying my hand at creating bratty nursery storie and fairytale girls.

Hi,  I have a group on Flickr called Badbird Patterns ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/1053596@N21/ ) it would be great to include your owl.  This Flickr group helps people who are new to embroidery know how they might handle my patterns, plus it's a really ego boost for me.  Makes me feel queenish.

oooh I adore the bird in the second picture that is tsjilping (sp?) and the look of the other one, like 'has anything happened?'
Hey there!  the first print is of Chickadees and the second is of Goldfinches.  Both evil birds.

I love this print and your others too(I found you on etsy awhile back and really admire your work.)  Beautiful!  Thanks for your sharing your technique as well, I am always curious about how others create and the what tools they use.  Awesome!
Thanks so much.  I like it when other artist share their methods.  I particularly like when they describe their creative methods to produce artwork.  How and where do they get inspiration? What music do they listen to when creating?  How do they get inspiration?

Thanks everyone!  First, beepart, I looked at your Etsy store too.  Absolutely fantastic!

Second, WiccadWitch,  Love your avatar.  I get a lot of my inspiration from the Looneytoon cartoons.  Just last week I found the cartoon with Marc Anthony and the Kitten on Youtube.  It's the best.

I never make functional items out of my embroidery.  I hang mine up.  They are art.  I don't care if they are my own design or a Aunt Martha pattern I just love them as art.
