The prompt for the first one was to create a piece around the theme of "buffet". My mind instantly went to the word "gluttony", and it was along those lines that I created this piece. "You are what you eat" takes on a whole new meaning doesn't it?
This second piece is based on the folktale called "The Panther". This folktale was an early, more gruesome predecessor to the story we now know as Little Red Riding Hood. Basically it's a panther instead of a wolf, and he eats the mother and brother of these two sisters, dresses up like the mom, then decides to come after the girls for more. Pretty exciting stuff.
