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.
