I was doodling and playing with some contrasting colors and shapes. The end result was decent but nothing spectacular. However, when I inverted the colors, they became so much more vibrant to me. Then I added a series of haikus on top then submitted it for OC Imaginology. The piece entitled "Dystopia" was selected as division winner for illustrated haiku. As you can imagine, I've been reading a bunch of dystopian literature lately, including Hunger Games, Divergent, 1984, Fahrenheit 451 among others. My cover of Apprentice of the Elements also won for the book design category. Be sure to visit OC Imaginology this weekend. There's always lots of neat exhibits and activities for kids. Can't wait to check it out!
