Of all the pieces I have done on the iPad, this one has grabbed people the most. I made it my Facebook profile pic, and it caused quite a stir among my Friends! So far, I have a total of 17 "likes" and climbing on this one. More than anything else I've ever posted. I think it caught people by surprise.
Little Red Riding Hood. "You're everything a Big Bad Wolf could want...." This one got quite a lot of attention from my Facebook friends as well. I left out the wrinkles. Glammed up, probably a bit too much. I don't think any of my Friends caught the meaning of "Do I look suspicious?"
Of course, it is a comment about the Trayvon Martin case. An attractive white woman, wearing a hoodlie. Is she suspicious? How about a black male teenager wearing a hoodie? Is he? The tragedy of this case has at least opened up a dialog about the way the dominant culture in this country views black males. As a mother, my sympathy goes to his family, and, especially to his mother. I know I would want my son's killer in jail. Such a sad, sad tragedy. The vigilante fantasy reaped cold reality.
