One flew over the cuckoo's nest

Here's my submission for the student penguin competition to illustrate a front cover for One flew over the cuckoo's nest. I finished reading it in February its a great book I really recommend it, its sad- yes but its also a spirit lifting book of people power and of the absurdity of rules and regulations to cure mental health - at the time. Talking to Scott about ideas helped because we didn't want to make a bleak cover of insanity and being trapped in a mental hospital. We wanted it to be light-hearted like Mcmurphy is, witty and playful and cheeky playing games with the rules.
