Dean's Brave New World wins Book Illustration Competition
Finn Dean has won this year's Book Illustration Competition, beating over 500 other entrants all attempting to interpret the Aldous Huxley classic Brave New World
The Book Illustration Competition is a partnership between the charity House of Illustration and The Folio Society. Open to all illustrators over the age of 18, both student and professional, the winner receives a Folio Society commission worth £4,500. Five runners-up receive £500 each.
This year's brief was to illustrate Brave New World, Huxley's classic 1931 novel about a dystopian future society. Dean's winning work (below) will appear in a new Folio Society version of the book to be published in September. Dean is 33 and a graduate of Bath School of Art. See more of his work here

I like the winner but my favorite is kit russel. I am really surprised how a cheap version of mark weaver's illustrations - maria carrasco - could met the finals. ugh.
Time ago "illustrators" were people who knew how to draw and paint.
Later on "designers" were those who -not knowing how to draw- started to combine triangles, squares and circles to depict things.
It's all sooooo poor...
