Goede adviezen

Geïnspireerd door quotes van bekende schrijvers maakte illustrator Evan Robertson deze sterke zwart/wit-serie. Cool.
Evan: "The best thing about paperbacks (apart from the smell, of course) is that when a little jewel of a sentence grabs you, you can underline it. If you’ve only ever read a book on a screen, then let me explain: Underlining something in your book is the original “interactive” media. Think of it as a hyperlink that redirects to your own thoughts, and like a hyperlink, it can leave the rest of the story behind and open up a new window of ideas, insights, musings.

That’s the spirit of this series of illustrations. I took little snippets of text and ideas from some of my favorite authors (with some notable exceptions that I’m saving), and let the words be a springboard for an illustration. The illustrations incorporate and interact with the text and hopefully add up to something that engages the mind as much as the eye.

The quotations came from various places. I wasn't interested in the usual suspects, and wanted to find things that I had either underlined in my own travels or had stumbled across and just loved. I think visually, so I knew I had a great quotation when it inspired my hand as well as my head."
