The idea for this version of the cover for “Of mice and men” was to use the symbolism of the rabbit from the previous concept and to make it bolder. Combining it with an idea of masks hiding the true nature of oneself brings more depth to the meaning.

Being the prototype for many modern Doppelgänger-motifs in film and books, the story of a genius doctor and (spoiler) his evil alter ego fascinated me with its dark Victorian setting, amazing story and deep idea about different personalities that coexist in all of us.
I remember my first encounter with “Of mice and men”. In a scene from the series “Lost”, the villain had it on his desk. I thought maybe reading it would help me understand his motives and view on life. So I read it. The symbolism of it could definitely be related to his personality, but there was much more to it.
