This piece is an illustration of the following quote from George Orwell's "Down and Out in Paris and London": "Work in the hotel taught me the true value of sleep, just as being hungry had taught me the true value of food. Sleep had ceased to be a mere physical necessity; it was something voluptuous, a debauch more than a relief." In order to capture the sense of escapism that characterizes this quote, I placed the narrator (Orwell) and his futuristic airship against the backdrop of a cityscape comprised of Modernist and/or neoclassical architecture, creating a juxtaposition of the terrestrial and the fantastical.
