Animal Farm

    Man, this image get's so many views! If you like this one, check out www.templesmith.com 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.

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

      @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!

      The little twinkles of Steadman are great for this.

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

      Is there a link to the books that they made available with blank covers?

    8. Ben Templesmith 64 months ago | reply

      @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.

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