Hello. Since we have all done children's books, we may have things already done to submit to this contest...

About and Rules

The rules are simple; create artwork based on Brothers Grimms fairytale; Little Red Riding Hood.
The theme can be done in many ways, and I hope to see a lot of interesting artwork.
You can choose to portray it in different ways, in a traditional way, a sweet way or perhaps a dark Gothic way? Anything creative is welcome, only your imagination sets the limit.

Both digital(photomanips as well), photography and traditional artwork is welcome.
You can submit up to 3 artworks, all should be new artworks and not previously submitted work.

You can submit your entries in either a Note or through email (contact @ zindy-zone.dk) with a link to the deviation. I will put them in the contest folder as they come along. Please write Red Riding Hood Contest in the subject field as I might not see it otherwise due to many notes a day.

Free Ai Weiwei

Since then, there has been no word as to their whereabouts until now. A statement was released this afternoon from a state-run global times newspaper breaking China’s media silence on the situation, stating that ai weiwei has no respect for the laws of his country, and that he is on the verge of pushing the limits of legal tolerance. for this, Ai Weiwei’s behaviour will be evaluated and he will pay a price for his actions.

The artist is best known for his political activism revolving around the earthquake that hit china’s sichuan province in 2008. Since then he has faced physical abuse from authorities, his new studio was recently demolished and his name and work
has been censored throughout china among other events and incidents.

Ai Weiwei’s work ‘sunflower seeds’ is currently on show at the tate modern in london. In may his ‘cirlce of animals / zodiac heads’ world tour will begin in the grand army play near central park in new york.

With finals coming, I know I am in need of some serious zzzzzz's . Check out these weird beds. One's even a book!
