The Hanging Stranger - Book Cover/Poster Design

This project involved creating a concept for a book cover or poster design for a short story. The Hanging Stranger, by Philip K. Dick, is about a man who returns home to discover that the people in his town have been replaced by insect-like alien creatures. Using a hanging corpse as bait, the aliens can easily identify humans by their hysterical reactions. I wanted to illustrate an eerie scene that emphasizes the bait-like nature of the humans' capture. Created with Adobe Photoshop.
