Book Quotes Turned Into Inspirational Illustrations [Pics]
Artist Evan Robertson creates prints inspired by literary passages.
Evan Robertson’s black and white illustrations are inspired by literary quotes from great authors and thinkers like Ernest Hemingway, Shakespeare, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Charles Dickens. Each print incorporates a quote from a book, along with a clever and thoughtful drawing.
The project began when Robertson would see a “little jewel of a sentence” and underline it. He would then take those “snippets of text and ideas” and “let the words be a springboard for an illustration.” He explained that, “The illustrations incorporate and interact with the text and hopefully add up to something that engages the mind as much as the eye.”
