For this entry into my Design Something Every Day project I created a digital doodle for one of the greatest books of the 20th Century, William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. The book pulls back the curtain of civilized society and explores the darker superstitious and bestial side of human nature. It is truly a must read.
Lord of the Flies has had a very deep influence on the culture, with references and allusions in works as diverse as LOST, Survivor, the Simpson’s. Two major film versions of the book have been produced, the fair Harry Hook 1990 version and the far superior 1963 Peter Brook classic. You can watch the Brook’s film on YouTube, if you haven’t seen this disturbing film, please do, it is well worth it.
