Still with the red riding hood theme ... but given the often sexual, predatory subtext of the original story, how would that translate into this version? Would a teenage boy necessarily be wary of a (were)wolf in the guise of a powerful (and most likely older) woman?
And if not, how about the Death in Venice scenario? But again, Tadzio is very much a Lolita in charge, playing with fire perhaps but still holding all the cards.
Then, of course, there's My own private Idaho, but that's a little too dark for this drawing - all I really want is an angle that makes the drawing work.
Perhaps all I need is to make it prettier and less dark and well, not over-think it ;)
