In 2008, I worked with Penguin Books
(UK) to design the cover of their reissue of George Orwell’s dystopian drama “1984.” I consider both 1984
and Animal Farm
two of the most important and inspiring novels written in the 20th century and I continue to use elements from both books in my work today.
Since Donald Trump took office earlier this year, the book has climbed to the top spot on Amazon’s bestseller list, likely because themes in the book are still relevant in today’s political, social, and economic climate. Director Michael Radford’s rendition of the film is heading back into theaters on April 4th in over 180 art-house theaters around the country and world in protest of Trump’s administration and politics.
