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.

Disturbing, beautiful and in some way slightly innocent as you only have one pigoon looking up so that the scene is not overwhelmed with surrealism! I Love It!

I really like the pigoon to the far right. Its face has human qualities, which make them all the more scary to me.
Amazing work.

I didn't know how to picture pigoons at first, but this helped me visualize them. <3

This is strangely perfect. It gives me a sense of unease that fits Atwood's words with ease.

Found this on the web a while ago - probably your site - when I was reading Oryx and Crake.

Phenomenal book.
