Versions of the Big Bad Wolf living in the Dark Forest appear in numerous European folktales, most famously in Little Red Cap aka Little Red Riding Hood. I have always seen the Wolf and the Dark Forest as a dual entity, where the whole or the parts are endangered species. The girl is a symbol of change. She is swallowed by the shadows in the forest never to return, or she is "rescued" by – of all people – a woodcutter with an axe…

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique; a set number of prints (edition) are printed by the artist from a handmade plate. The drawing is incised into a plate with a hard-pointed "needle" or diamond point. Traditionally, the plate was copper or zinc, but today, a clear acrylic sheet is commonly used. The plate is inked, and the ink is transferred onto cotton paper using a printing press.

All prints are shipped flat in a rigid mailer.
