Marc Martin


Marc Martin often illustrates urban settings devoid of humans, abandoned, silent and usually featuring a lone stray.
This image because of the red around the mirror and the dense foliage made me think of red riding hood.

Luis San Vicente I


I know that I am stepping further away from the theme here, but the emotion is the same as Little Red Riding Hood and the palette, so in my loose rules I am allowing it because I love the way the beast is encircling the girl. This illustration is by Mexican illustrator Luis San Vicente.

Cynthia Orensztajn I


Cynthia Orensztajn's illustration from 'Benjamin' with text by María Teresa Andruetto, Alfaguara Colombia, 2012. This is a fable about a boy so small he could fit in a nutshell, Benjamin; which means smallest and of course this vulnerable explorer meets a wolf.
