I'm feeling inspired by the current trend of recreating things in a retro way, such as this flickr set: [link]
I'm still reeling from the excitement of seeing Inception, so I opted to create a Penguin Books-style cover for a fictitious novelisation of the film.
If you've seen the film (and you should have!) then hopefully the illustration will make sense to you.
I've decided to adjust this design slightly. It now follows the dimensions, composition and type style as the classic 'Romek Marber' Penguin books much more accurately. I also added some texture to give it a bit of age.
