Illustrations for "Ladle Rat Rotten Hut"
In this project, we were asked to illustrate our interpretation of the classic "Little Red Riding Hood" using various manual printing techniques.
II chose to use a text based on the story, called "Ladle Rat Rotten Hut": basically "Little Red Riding Hood", re-written with similar-sounding words substituting for the original folk tale, as part of an ersatz language called Anguish Languish.
The collages are then based on the odd words used for the characters' names and descriptions (for example, "groin murder" instead of "grandmother".)
The techniques used are Cyanotype and Linocut.
