Reality by EranFolio Reality by EranFolio
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.

This is an interesting concept. Even though you say it's skewed, I like the composition. It'll look quite fetching as a book cover. Good work :)

I remember when I first saw this, I was working on Sigs and Avatars- Good to see it refreshed with the dust blown off it.

I love this futuristic electro junkie look.  Do you have more images like this? I found it as it was used as the artwork on a youtube track.  Lots of people asking where it was from so I have directed them here.  Thankx

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!

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 :)
