Lola Roja / by Rebecca Tillett

Last month it was my friend and coworker Lucas's birthday and I was finally able to complete his gift. It's an illustration of his adorable daughter, Lola, as Little Red Riding Hood. I wrote a pretty dark poem to accompany the drawing so I'm thinking about creating a second piece to reflect that! Anyway, Happy Belated Birthday, Lucas! I hope you enjoy your gift. I know I had a hell of a fun time creating it.


She pranced and she skipped and she romped through the woods
On toward gramma's house quick as she could
When out of the shadows a wolf did appear
But our dulce mijita sensed danger was near
She cried "Come mierda y muerte, cabrón!"
And smashed him over the head with a rather large stone
Killed that wolf dead, right where he stood
Then onward she strolled, our Lola Red Riding Hood
