I may have had more trouble recreating this room than Nash did, but at least I had the right carpet in mind. Haha. I wanted this cover design to read instantly as INCEPTION even if it were seen out of context. I also wanted to show the intensity of Saito's situation in the comic, so I picked out the katana with which he killed himself, and I made a parallel between that and his relationship with Sonia. You can probably guess what I was going for.
So here is my contest entry and a tribute to one of my favorite cinema experiences in a long time. Cheers!
