Alternate Book Cover

Friday, February 17th, 2012


1984 is a book by George Orwell that depicts a distopian future where wars are made up an citizens are kept under strict control. Big Brother is an idea in the book used to keep people under supervision and prohibit them from expressing themselves in any other way than what the government would want. The Big BrotherĀ  figure is foreboding and angry looking which would reveal the type of atmosphere surrounding the book. I decided to flip that on its head and depict a kind looking, smiling, Big Brother, keeping the tagline, “Big Brother is Watching You.” 1984 now is not a book about authoritarian government and thought police but perhaps a book about a good older brother that takes care of his siblings.
