7 designers reimagine ‘Westworld’

If you still think Sweetwater is a futuristic park where visitors can play out their darkest desires, then stop reading—there are major spoilers ahead. (Get yourself in front of a screen to catch up on Westworld ASAP!)

For everyone else, the season two finale left us with some major questions (no surprise there): When are we? Are you a host? Is everyone a host? Did Teddy finally find happiness?

If the wait between season one and season two is any indication, we may be waiting over a year to see Dolores, Arnold, and The Man in Black again in season three.

To ease the pain, here are our seven favorite pieces of Westworld fan art we found on Dribbble:

The Maze

By John Mendez. The maze is both a symbol seen throughout the park and a representation of Arnold’s theory of creating consciousness. In season two, we finally learn more about the maze thanks to Akecheta, who begins to spread the symbol as a reminder of the falseness of “this world” as he becomes sentient.


Westworld

By Angella Watterson. Inspired by traditional geisha attire and makeup, this stylized portrait of Madame Akane sums up her mother-daughter relationship with Sakura—and the lengths she’ll go to defend that love.


Bernarnold

By Eddie N Friends. Whether he’s Bernard, Bernarnold, or Bernard being controlled by Ford, this character is one of the most complex, nuanced ones on the show. He also serves to ask other characters—and us all—the real difference between human and hosts.


Westworld hats

By Brian Lueck. The hats in Westworld are a lot more than fashion statements. According to the original Westworld website, the hat a guest chooses “embodies how you intend to play it inside.” Young William chooses the white hat, but as he evolves into The Man in Black, his hat also becomes black.


Westworld

By Matt Pamer. Beginning with the mechanical horse in the title sequence of season one, horses are a big theme in Westworld. And that makes sense—the animals are a common symbol for freedom, strength, and independence.


Westworld

By Carl Filer. Bernard, Ford, the Man in Black, and Dolores are all intermixed in this colorful graphic. The character portraits seem to all blend together and you can’t tell where one beings and the other ends, kind of like a dream. Or, in the words of Bernard in the season two finale, it “isn’t a dream, this is a f—ing nightmare.”


Westworld

By Ben Grossblatt. One of the most popular phrases on Westworld is taken from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and like all things in Westworld, it has multiple meanings. In season one, a Redditor discovered that on Dolores’ profile, it states that when the quote is uttered, it loads up Wyatt’s narrative. Both Arnold and Ford said this phrase right before Dolores shot them, which could be an indication that this theory is sound.
