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.

I personally think of myself as an eccentric, nerdy, introverted 20-something. I like books, video games, the internet (duh), baked goods (pretty non-discriminatory about what type), Doctor Who, my husband, and my cat, killer shoes, action movies and hot and/or alcoholic beverages to relax with.
