Character. Eugene Yelchin. Red Riding Hood and Wolf Illustration
I found this illustration purely by accident just looking around on the internet for children book illustration artists and images. I found this a vary unique way of interpreting the wolf in the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood. His head being bigger than his body is both hilarious and menacing. It also is a good metaphor for an inflated ego. I love the suit, it makes me think of a sleazy used car salesmen. His posture of a "devil may care" attitude on the bench fits with the type of character Mr. Yelchin is presenting to us. It is adding human traits to the wolf, thus I think, making him more devious and cunning.
