This image is older than dirt by now, but since Elastic Press www.elasticpress.com has recently asked me to format this image for use as a book cover, I've done some more touch-ups to the background and I thought I'd share. The odd composition is a result of compensating for the way the book will fold in half once it's printed; for the book cover the image will be flipped. It also happens to fit my Macbook Pro's screen resolution, so have another desktop why don'tcha.

Wow this is a huge coincidence that I ran into this right after I watched the short film. :l have you by any chance had some references from the short film 'MORE' by Mark Osborne? If not than look it up its a very great 6 minute film. regardless this looks very well made congrats on the book cover!

Would you rather live your life bruised and broken, or wear a mask to make yourself feel like the pain has gone away. Amazing work👍

Impressive, fantastic and so on, one of thoose images that tells a thousand words in silence...

Reminds me of Wild Palms miniseries (1993) and so many other futuristic series, that tells us "we will be lost...".
Also I see the danger of letting kids having too mutch time in front of the computer, come out and play and have IRL fun.

Congrats on the cover :)

This is a truer image than most of us would like to think. That includes me here sitting in front of the computer screen instead of doing something about that shed door out back... Neither the kid nor his environment are healthy, and can he or his family really afford that thing, but who cares, he has the electronic dreamworld to use as a hiding place. It's the new bread and circuses, 21st century style.
