Oryx And Crake- Snowman by jason-courtney Oryx And Crake- Snowman by jason-courtney
"Snowman wakes before dawn"

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.

Wow this is amazing! Really helps me visualize an older, decrepit Jimmy that I had trouble doing before

have you ever read M.Atwood's book "The Year of the Flood"? if so,  do you know what 'top to toe" might mean? this word was mentioned in the book, however i do not know it's meaning.however,it's certain that it is a noun. but i have no idea how such cloth might look.

I'm completely confused as to why I haven't favorited your Oryx and Crake series, because I know for a fact I've sat here and admired them so many times! I just love them. They're the best artwork out there for my favorite book. :love:

I love this, what a beautiful piece that really captures Snowman. Have you thought about doing the Crakers and Crake?

This is amazing... The feeling of decay is almost palpable... And the image is very real...
Perfectly renders the atmosphere of the book too.

Yes I've always thought so too. It was very rude of me too link to it years ago without even bothering to come and say thanks to the artist or ask permission. There should be more art from these Atwood novels as they're full of striking and novel images.

GAH. I have to draw a scene for the novel for my writer's craft class, and I was drawing this scene; this just made me feel so inferior! Haha...maybe I shouldn't have gone looking for pictures...^^;
Great job, though! This looks amazing! :D

Absolutely great depiction of the characters. I'm really fond of your Crake piece on perdador.

Thanks! Unfortunately the Crake piece turned out to be too low-rez for print.

Aw. That's a shame. I would most likely buy that print. Crake is a great character to draw, so is Jimmy. I like to see how people interpret how he looks like. Yours the best so far.
