+ Wojciech Magierski is a Polish artist who, it just so happens, has done two striking portraits featuring two of my favorite fairy tales so far this year. 
I’ll post his Snow Queen later; for now, meet Red. 
Gratified thanks to my friend David for turning me on to this artist.

+ Pretty much every day is a Little Red Riding Hood day around here. Unless it’s a Snow Queen day, honestly.

Wow, that smile on the Prince’s face on this cover for Sleeping Beauty is capital-C Creepy. Seriously. Shudders. 

On the other hand, I utterly love the cover for Little Red Riding Hood and would like a print of it. I do realize that, at this point, I probably need a Red room that has nothing but images of LRRH on the walls.

Four possible covers for four tales of Charles Perrault.
“Little Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard, Sleeping Beauty” and Puss in Boots”.

Creepiest Sleeping Beauty book cover ever? I really like the other ones though, especially LRRH. The Bluebeard’s creepy but you kind of expect that….

"A woodsman is a valuable ally to have, of course! It’s just nice not to have to twiddle one’s thumbs in the wolf’s belly while waiting for him. Y’know: have Red Hood, will Rescue Herself."

Stefano Morri’s soft-edged style reminds me of Lisa Snellings Clark’s Poppets.
Via this collection of overall rather terrifying Little Red Riding Hood illustrations.

This depiction of Little Red Riding Hood is both gorgeous and full of foreboding. By Corey Godbey, also found via this collection.

+ Thanks to my friend Krys, I have been inspired to make today a Little Red Riding Hood-themed day. Starting with this arresting book art by Su Blackwell.
More amazing LRRH art at the link.

Evocatively done, although I could wish for a more dynamic background. Vertical lines representative of trees, perhaps?

The symbolism is too hard to resist, I guess.

Seems lots of Riding Hood art draws on putting Red and Wolf in the same… space (? not really the word I want) or juxtaposing their different colors in once space, usually the wolfs silhouette with Red’s somewhere near his mouth. It’s rarer to see this with other fairy tale art.
