The frowning dude in the lower left is supposed to be Winston.

Building in the right is the Ministry Of Truth(inspired by the building on the wikipedia article on it) and the figure in the back is the unknown Big Brother.

(I have yet to read the book as so far I have only seen the movie.)

self-critique: Looking at it again now, I don't really like it at all anymore. Don't know what I was thinking while I pixelled it, but in comparison to my other pieces, I think this is the worst piece of garbage I ever created.

Dingo: They use Newspeak in the movie too, so I caught it. Thank you.

Darth Mandarb: Thanks.

"Big brother is watching you"

I love this book and I really do like what you've done with making the cover. Double-plus good (if you've read the book you'll catch the joke).
