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

Elizabeth O. Dulemba


I blogged on the art room about rediscovering and using unfixed tissue paper as a method of printing. Elizabeth O. Dulemba contacted me about what type of tissue paper I had used, but it was no specific brand just a cheap pack I had picked up. Anyway, Elizabeth has started working with little red and has been layering the colours of the tissue prints and I love her results. Looking forward to seeing how this work develops.

Sophie Lécuyer



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.

Nicolas Gouny II


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.

Nathalie Minne


This work by Nathalie Minne is not a Little Red Riding Hood image, but because of Nathalie's palette and her drawing iconography and symbolism often her works look very like passages from this story.
'El ladrón de palabras' is the story of a word thief, a little gatherer of the days words who delights in their different characters and meanings.
