In researching further into risographs for The Art Room Plant I have found French illustrator Sophie Lécuyer's work. Sophie's work has a theme of the wild and the mythologies and stories of wilderness including images relating to Little Red Riding Hood.

A delightful, bright, very stylised 'Red Riding Hood' from Nicolas Gouny. Despite coming to illustration as a career later, Nicolas has published many books he has a very recognisable graphic style and a great sense of fun in his works.

Luba Haleva's work often has a dark nightmareish feel to it concocted from collage, print and drawn elements that give it placement in our world whilst making it otherworldy or of a different conciousness, like dreams.
