I wanted to reinterpret fairy tales and fantasy books using plastic dolls rescued from thrift stores after I found them abandoned and discarded on a pile.
They were going to be the perfect beginning for another Darknita Art project, the deranged storybook series.
They have the cute and adorable look I am known for, but with a touch of the darkness that lurks within me all the time, just below the surface waiting for a chance to be let out.
Big Bad Wolf is sitting on the bed of Grandma on the continuation of the twisted fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, reimagined by Danita Art with animal and woodland creatures.
The Big Bad Wolf sleeps on a handmade bed, sheets and blankets that can be removed if you wish. Everything is mounted on a wood box that measures 8x8 inches, aged using mixed media techniques and an alchemy of materials that I used on everything you see here, from his aged and distressed spun cotton face, and beautiful decorations as a bed, red shoes and a window on the chamber.
