‘Work of Art’ Contestant Wins Episode With Re-imagination of Time Machine Cover

pineapple.pngYesterday we mentioned that the challenge for contestants on last night’s episode of Work of Art: The Next Great Artist would be to create cover art for a Penguin book. The issue aired, and contestant John won with a bright, angular interpretation of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine.

The winning design is pictured. The contestant described his inspiration as “my reality and gay culture,” which some found touching and others self-centered. In his recap, art critic Jerry Saltz said, “We finally agreed that John’s abstract pink pineapple from the 27th century was the real winner.”

But what do you think, publishing people? Would this sell? Actually, since it’s going to be on the cover of the book, the real question is: Will it?
