1984 by Myiaorkhley 1984 by Myiaorkhley
This is the project I turned in for my illustration class for a science fiction book cover. The novel I chose was 1984 and this is my vision of what it looks like.

This is wonderful!!! I wrote my Master Thesis about 1984, comparing it to "Brave New World", "Fight Club" and "American Psycho", analysing how Mass Media creates reality (a value system and reward system) in the societies described in theses novels. 
I want to publish the thesis now on Amazon, Germany next year.

May I use your illustration and credit you?

Absolutely, I would be honored! However, be sure to use my real name and not my DeviantArt screenname (it should be in my main profile if you need to find it).

I like how you reimagined BB there, and I like the smoke on the image. It gives Oceania the character of a gloomy superstate...

awesome- I recently read this book for the first time and I also had a kind of dusty/grimy/foggy vision of how it would look. The silhouettes with only the face of Big Brother really show how no one person is important- only the will of Big Brother. so much conveyed in such a basic image. good job!

Wow... uberfully nice buildings. Especially on the right!!! I like. Big Brother looks pretty chummy like he wants to pat you on the back and tell you how nicely you are conforming. You really have a thing for post apocalyptic foggy looks don't you.
