Hiu Yuan Chang

A vintage style illustration by Hui Yuan Chang reminiscent of late 1950's early 1960's children's books printed with limited colour palette's, in this case a palette of red, green and black.

"I started with the idea that I wanted to to draw something about a children's classic fairy tale, and one with a fluffy animal in it.Once I had decided to draw a big bad wolf, I found it is a bit of a shame to always have a bad wolf, and I thought even if the wolf has a sad ending, so I still wanted to give the wolf a cute look. I chose pastel to give the painting a soft tone, but two contrasts in colour to show the conflict and strong tension in the story." Hiu Yuan Chang
