I finished reading ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ a couple of months ago - I really enjoyed it and made this book cover illustration in response.
Who doesn’t love a good Oscar Wilde quote? There are so many great ones. The above illustration was inspired by this:
"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth."
I wondered what good this would do if the person in question was already wearing a mask? My conclusion is that the truth may not be so readily forthcoming…
