Speed Paint Challenge / The Paperback Challenge #5

so the reason why i went for a image of a cocoon is because i fought it was a bit more subtle then just going for a straight drawing of a beetle and a man and as i did a quick browse of google to look at the old covers a saw that this was a common look if this was going to print i would also fade the image so it was less vivid seeing as this is a speed painting i think its fine to leave it how it is. 
Franz Kafka / The Metamorphosis (1915)

"The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed into a large, monstrous insect-like creature. The cause of Gregor's transformation is never revealed, and Kafka himself never gave an explanation. The rest of Kafka's novella deals with Gregor's attempts to adjust to his new condition as he deals with being burdensome to his parents and sister, who are repulsed by the horrible, verminous creature Gregor has become."
