Oryx And Crake- Pigoons by jason-courtney Oryx And Crake- Pigoons by jason-courtney
"Jimmy went in to visit the pigoons"

One of a set of illustrations to Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel Oryx & Crake, taken on as a personal project.

These were done a couple of years ago, but I'm uploading them here in order to make prints available to anyone who's interested.

Incredible! This is exactly what pops in my mind when I think of the book... One of the creepiest scenes, in the very beginning, where the pigoons are still presented as quite innocent... The pigoon whose face we can see is the most frightening one, because he looks human... And which makes the entire image - and the novel - even more disturbing.

No words. This is just really great. I love how you made the pigoons so humongous and disturbing, and how it contrasts with cute little Jimmy in the biosuit.
