I've been working up the courage to tackle this cover for George Orwell's Animal Farm for a while now; it seems so easy but it was really difficult. Mostly because, despite the satirical nature, the plot isn't all that fun and vibrant like this color palette. I went with some military inspiration since the book addresses some militaristic tendencies inherent in the Russian Communist revolution. I also tossed in that vintage Russian wedding band to pay homage to the subject material. A cute little piggy necklace is a nod to Orwell's talking animal leads.
