Kang San 잠산

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.

Eva Macekova II

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.'

Eva Macekova I

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.

Tang Yun

Tang Yun's 'Little Red Hood has a Muddle Head', Tang Yun was born in 1973 and attended the China Academy of Arts, I am afraid at this time I am unable to find an internet link to her work. In this version of the fairy tale Little red forgets her way to her grandmothers but because she is so kind despite having all kinds of misadventures on her journey she finds her way safely to her gran's house in the end.

Images from 'Solo un puntino' by Elizabeth Pica, Clare Vignocchi and Silvia Borando (Minibombo). Only a small dot features a very hungry wolf pursuing a red dot that changes its identity with every spread.

Mariano Diaz Prieto

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.
