Book Cover Idea


This is my illustration for Ray Bradbury's classic cautionary tale of censorship and creative oppression. Published in 1953, it still resonates to this day.

Yeah, the one's who scream about intolerance and censorship are the first one's to use it.


how about some fire at the bottom of that, to go with the whole book-burning thing?

Dead on John. You'd find some takers if you auctioned that one off.



This piece doesn't exist outside of my Photshop file. Half the illustration is some random pages I scanned in. The other part (an eye illustration I did in watercolor) is layered on top with additional digital lighting effects.

very nice and innovative design. am a bookcover designer, check my work at my blog http://bookcoverdesigns.blogspot.com/


Saw your site. Very clean and concise artwork.


I wonder what temperature my AR melts at?


I saw a tape of an A.S. segment where they did a high-volume fire test (2000 rds., I think). It was a mil-spec AR, & the only problem they had was misfeeding when the receiver got dry. They used some light oil to "semi-quench" the receiver, & the misfeeds barely slowed it down.
