Illustrations for Aldous Huxley's Brave New World

The brief is to make a series of illustrations for Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel Brave New World. The images submitted depict specific scenes from the book. I wanted to communicate the childlike sensuality and the idea of isolation in a highly socialized society. Despite the world of the novel being tailored for happiness, many of the characters held a secret loneliness.
