Thomas Allen Photography

I've wanted to do this diorama style for a while ever since I saw someone completely copy the original on the second floor of the art building.  The originals, done by Thomas Allen and designed for book covers by Chip Kidd.  They didn't even change it much at all, it's like they just copied the style EXACTLY and marketed it to their professor as their own.  Same pulp style and everything, they could have at least switched SOMETHING up.  They got away with it too, which I think is really awful.  The person I was with said "Doesn't this look cool?" and I thought, it would look better if I made it my own and didn't just completely rip someone else off.  So I tried it out.  

I'm using the bottom one for a Wormhole cover.
