B&tB 'Swamp Thing' Poster

Swamp Thing by Florian Bertmer for Mondo. This is the best poster I've seen playing up the Beauty & the Beast angle. I also love the single play of red against green which makes it feel even more fairy tale like. 

A little while back I saw what appears to be an amateur fairy tale illustration of four panels in black and white with the only color in them being the red of a hood, a rose and of blood. It really brought out how strong symbolism can be in fairy tales. After a bit of a hunt I found the illustration but not the original source to give credit to. If you know the artist, please let me know and I'll update the post.
