[Editorial] Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

  • Book cover illustration inspired by the sci-fi classic Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I wanted to compliment the thought-evoking story with a smooth, dream-like illustration that reflects the state of mind. As a departure from the iconic sheep imagery, I portrayed an android head: The dissection of the head shows its artificial intelligence, with the face indicating a mask of some sort that makes them almost indistinguishable from human beings. Thanks to Cathy Gendron and Chuck Gillies for the guidance throughout the project. The following are the process work involved in the making of the book cover illustration.
  • Thumbnail exploration.
  • The chosen sketch, ready for action.
  • The digital painting process.
  • Final illustration.
  • A mock-up of the book cover.
