From “Mona Lisa Overdrive” by William Gibson:
Kumiko turned, discovering the slim dark figure against tall, mullioned windows; beyond the windows, a walled garden sheathed in snow. The woman’s eyes were concealed by silver glasses that reflected the room and it’s occupants. […] The mirrored lenses seemed to have no frames, no earpieces.
A quick piece of fan-art of that I’ve been lazily working on for the last couple weeks. Gibson’s Sprawl Trilogy (Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive) is a favorite of mine and so many of the scenes in the novels are depicted so vividly. Sally Spears / Molly Millions is the muscle for hire in the series but always seems to have her own motives. Gibson also seems to enjoy describing, in elaborate detail, what she’s wearing which I’ve always envisioned as some approximation of futuristic fashion by ’80s standards.
Patrick Leger is awesome, guys. Also his interpretation of future-fashion by 80’s standards. Also William Gibson.
