Brave New World Inspirations
Mostly relating to the Lenina working in the hatchery. The second image was always going to be less literal and more exaggerated so there was a little more freedom there. The third image I was merely without the time to really develop. The last image, from the Akira manga, was more about when I was conceptualising the world as a whole. The nursery for the elderly children in Akira was kind of summoned up in my mind when I read the book and I was quite interested in emphasising the infantilization of the inhabitants of the Brave New World. I also began planning their outfits to seem a bit like the onesies worn by newborns because they reiterated this same effect while simultaneously appearing rather futuristic.
