Dr Seuss


My wolf muse has left me just now, I am busy working on a book about Aleppo and in constant shell shock at the politics of my own country and America. 
However I was interested today to find this 1941 Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) cartoon using the Red Riding Hood analogy to criticise the refusal of the U.S. to allow emigration of Jews.

Pamela Zagarenski


My howls of anger have not become wolves this time, but Pamela Zagarenski has created this Trump of a wolf in protest at the assault on science, ecology and environment by the new administration in America.

Gartnerfuglen



This project struck me because of the use of the anonymous red coated figure.
A project about disconnecting and reconnecting 'Unavailability' by Norwegian architects; Gartnerfuglen; a mobile fisherman's hut with a collapsable timber frame and walls of ice, where a single inhabitant can isolate themselves from modern technology.
Is this our new wilderness? The only space where it is possible to 'get away'? Thank you

Fernando Pérez Hernando I


I love this, clever, funny illustration by Fernando Pérez Hernando painted on cardboard with gouache, watercolour, marker pen and coloured pens.
 "This little red I made for a friend, and the message I wanted to send him is that everything depends on the eyes with which to look at things." Fernando Pérez Hernando
