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.

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.

Can I use it for a game, granting you credits, and an annual percentage as it turns commercial?

love the shading on this, and just the overall empty feeling you get when you look at it. You feel like that guy is really alone in the world.

glad i found the source of this picture because i need to know, is this based on an imaginary person or someone you know? The reason i ask (and why i'm here) is because he looks IDENTICAL to me. My friends agreed too so it's not just my imagination!
