A Wicked Gallery of Little Red Riding Hood Re-Imagined

For a long time it was vampires, but I’m guessing that the financial success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is going to spawn the next big thing in media: fairy tales re-imagined.  In fact, there’s supposedly a Little Red Riding Hood movie already in production, starring Amanda Seyfried.  For the most part, I’ll probably be opposed to this next trend generally, but for some reason, I’ve always been drawn to Little Red Riding Hood for the simple fact that so much can be done with the story.

The Big Bad Wolf can be symbolic of masculinity, Red herself a symbol of feminism, and the red color she wears as a symbol of her entering womanhood (if you get what I’m saying).  Everything else can be as wild or violent or memorable as you’d like it be, so long as you’ve got some creativity bouncing around in your head.  It turns out that many creative people have been doing just this for years, and I’ve posted what I think are the coolest re-imaginings and pieces of concept art for Little Red Riding Hood that I can find.

Take a look at the gallery below to see what I mean.  I’ve done my best to give credit, but regardless, all art is property of its respective creator.

That’s a very different type of big bad wolf:
