Inspired by George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, this illustration portrays the protagonist, Winston’s conflicting emotions throughout the story: fear, betrayal and love. Motifs from the novel, such as coral, bluebell and rat, are visually presented in this illustration. His body made of coral, with his head being devoured by a rat, this illustration portrays his desire for freedom and his ultimate loss of individuality at the end.
