Book Cover Design
Book Cover illustration for dutch edition of 1984 by George Orwell, published by amsterdam based press De Arbeiderspers. You can purchase the book on De Slegte.
This revolutionary masterpiece is one of my personal favourites among all the writings by George Orwell. When I was reading this book, it inspired me to create an illustration, which was later licensed by De Arbeiderspers for the Dutch paperback of 1984.
As the writing of this book creates a sense of dystopia and being watched by a totalitarian government, I was inspired to depict this feeling visually. I also wanted to create the illustration eye-catching in an uncomfortable way.
I experimented with optical illusions and created an illustration with many wide open eyes. If you look at the graphics for longer, it creates an illusion of movement and discomfort.
