Visual representations of fairy tales are not limited to children’s books. References to these stories appear in nearly every aspect of our cultural landscape and offer a variety of interpretations to these narratives. These affect our response to the tales and reshape our collective imagination. This range in fairy tale illustrations plays a significant role in the intertextual conversations that happen between retellings and critical writings. I explore this by creating my own version of The Little Red Riding Hood through a series of eleven tableaux, where each presents a different moment of the plot through a specific medium. I investigate how familiar elements can be communicated in a new context to alter anticipated patterns. This paper follows my process as I examine the role I play as a visual author in the creation of narrative.
