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.

Little Redwing and the Wolf

I was horrified to read today of people shooting migrating redwings. Their song has elated my mornings this last week, with a few individuals appearing to harvest, windfalls and berries.
Anger often leads me to images of Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf, paralysing other creativity but channeling it into versions of this story, the protagonists individually or together interchanging roles and representing so much for me.

Kasia Jackowska II

Kasia Jackowska often digitally blends photographs with drawings to create her imagery, red riding hood is a recurring theme in her work.

Kasia Jackowska I

Like in every fairytale world, in Kasia Jackowska's work human and beasts are equal, and live the same emotions, her drawings are often accompanied by popular pop-song quotes, building the bridge to situations we've all been in.

Luba Haleva

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.
