This artwork was created for the YouTube Artist Collective, which I am a part of. This month's theme required us to create a piece inspired by a song of our choice. The song I chose is titled "Meet Me in the Woods" by Lord Huron.

Listening to the song reminded me of "Into the Woods" by Sondheim and Lapine, a musical with an emphasis on the concept of venturing into the woods and coming out a changed person. This became my starting point when working on this drawing, with the main focus on Little Red Riding Hood's character. I also incorporated the illustration made by Lord Huron's frontman Ben Schneider to pay hommage to the true essence of the song.
