Animal Farm

Man, this image get's so many views! If you like this one, check out and see the other stuff I get up to....


I drew up another one of those "do your own cover" classic books. For me out of the whole bunch Animal Farm is my favourite. Even more than Dracula ( which I also have a copy of I need to do a cover for )

    What is it that is so sad and compelling about this book? All of us artists seem to come back to this imagery in one way or another, at some point, in our careers.

    You can taste the horse meat.
  • Ky PRO 7y

    That's far out. Love it! You should try"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" & "A Clockwork Orange"!
  • Ben Templesmith 7y

    @ky_olsen I would, if the books were in the blank cover selection. Don't think they are. I dig Clockwork Orange enough to do a mock cover sometime though. Just wish it could be on an actual book!
  • Chris Ricci 7y

    The little twinkles of Steadman are great for this.
  • Mun Vom 7y

    Hey Ben, with the way this cover look, man I vote for the full book. Is that a possibility?
  • Ky PRO 7y

    Is there a link to the books that they made available with blank covers?
  • Ben Templesmith 7y

    @Mun Von Sorry, it's not public domain so it'd be hard unless an existing publisher with the rights to it wanted me to! ( Unlike a Dracula book I'm doing which is easy as it is public domain )

    @ky olsen just google something like "blank covers penguin books" and am sure they'll come up. I forget the link, sorry!

    I would so buy it to. For sale by any chance? It's filled my bits with Templesmith love.
  • Ben Templesmith 5y

    Sadly it sold long ago, to a lucky ebay winner when I auctioned it off.
