What I love about this illustration by Korean artist Kang San 잠산, is the way the wolf has been merged with the derelict house and the tree, It is a wonderfully threatening image especially when you see the window in the chest of the wolf.

When searching for links to Eva Macekova's work yesterday I found a site that she has devoted to textile works with this wolf and red riding hood. I love this macabre work but what I find most compelling is the zip opening as it is so like pink gums and teeth. Eva's doll/ textile creations are disturbing, but also wonderful and would appeal greatly to fans of 'Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children.'

I would describe Eva Macekova's work as brutal naive, it has a purposeful simplicity of style of illustrators like David Shrigley and Maria Kalman.
Eva's work is also fiercely experimental, utilising many different techniques and styles. This version of 'Little Red Riding Hood' has been made using stencils and has a zine like quality.

I like the sense of danger created by this composition by Argentinian illustrator Mariano Diaz Prieto. The fear enhanced by the unusual perspective, and the possibility for the interpretation of the tree roots as further wolf ears or noses.
