Fan Art Friday (79)

This week's fan art is based on Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky. I loved this book. (If you haven't read my review, it's here) I love the cover as well, it's gorgeous. But looking at it, you wouldn't really get the idea that it's about digital takeover and the importance of unplugging every now and then. I decided to try my hand at a more straightforward concept. I've had this entire cover played out in my head the second I finished reading. I kind of felt like Maddie, the main character, was trapped in the digital life. So this cover works for me. Of course I'm not saying anybody gets trapped in computers in this book, but you know what I mean.


Thoughts? Yay/nay, awesomesauce or epic fail? Comment and let me know what you think! Your feedback is always appreciated!

  8. I love this whole change-the-book-cover shindig! It fulfills the human need to alter the world around us in order to make it our world, an Earth perfect to a certain individual's eyes. Any activity that fulfulls this desire is very awesome, don't you think?
