Neo 1984,Cover for “Dark Fairytales” by TinHong

Victo Ngai

I am so happy I got to work on my first Chinese book cover with Hong Kong/Taiwan/Mainland China best-seller TinHong.

TinHong’s latest book, “Dark Fairytales” (Non orthodox translation of 黑童話集), is a compilation of 16 novelettes set in a fictional metropolitan called “H town”. The stories are based on real stories in Hong Kong, structured after Chinese and Western classics such as “1984” by George Orwell, “The Last Class” by Alphonse Daudet, A Poor Man’s Tale of a Patent’ by Charles Dickens, ‘差不多先生傳“by胡適.etc. These parodies poke fun and reflect on the society’s current maladies, corruptions and injustice in a sarcastic and darkly-humorous way. 

For the cover, TinHong asked me to freely follow my inspiration. This was awesome and quite rare for book cover jobs. So I decided to make a piece about “H-Town” in a neo”1984”way.

Big thanks to TinHong for being an A+ author, art director, publisher and the ultra-delicious care-package!

Messin’ around with color palettes and finally colored this future-motorcycle-mecha-thing-lady I finished a few months ago! Now that I’ve finished up a few projects I finally had time to actually work on it! Anyway, not much else to say here, just drawing a few of my favorite things.

The Aftershocks

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!
