Ryn Frank


Ryn Frank, Ryn's style has become more pared down, graphic and stylised in the last few years and is very beautiful. This wolf is an illustration for 'the bloody chamber' by Angela Carter from a few years ago, and is a different style altogether  with great layering of imagery and text.

Hana Akiyama


Hana Akiyama's interpretation of little Red Riding Hood, is quite disturbing in that the images are very full and worked compared to Hana's usual pared down simplicity and spaciousness. The wolf is also very large and patchworked more like an old worn mother than a threatening wild animal.

Matthew Cordell



With a clear visual homage to Little Red Riding Hood, these illustrations are from Matthew Cordell's 'Wolf In The Snow' which was published earlier this year, a project that started with the picture above. Matthews research for this book about a little girl and a wolf cub who both get lost in the snow took him on a journey of wonder and knowledge including the amazing Yellowstone Wolf Project and a complete rediscovery and understanding of wolves. 

This silent book has won the Boston Globe-Horn Book award 2017 and is nominated for many other awards.
