Brave New World

Back in January I entered the Folio Society's third annual illustration competition with three interior illustrations for Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. They just announced the winner (you can see the book here), so I thought I'd share my entry. 


  1. Stopped by to say I especially love the middle. It seems like the person is dying. Might be due to the one tone and bleak color compared to the person in the foreground. I love the detail of that person in the background though.

    1. Thanks Jardley. The character is actually extremely stoned; I wanted her to match the bleak surroundings and provide a contrast to her son's awakening.
