The Artist

Evan Robertson’s creations begin with his bookshelf. Starting with the underlined passages in his favourite paperbacks, he then brainstorms possible companion images. Sometimes it only takes a few sketches, other times it takes dozens before he discovers the right one. From there, he creates a master sketch that he finalizes on the computer.

Robertson honours each author’s well-chosen words with his own thoughtful creative images. I appreciate the precision of the illustrations — they are each exactly what they need to be. Some prints are stark and spare and others are meticulously detailed.

Besides Fitzgerald, the list of authors runs like this — Jane Austen, Emily Brontë, ee cummings,T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, John Keats, Jack London, George Orwell, Edgar Allen Poe, Kurt Vonegut, Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf — and it keeps going.

  1. My fav Fitz is actually a short story called “Return to Babylon.” Just heartbreakingly brilliant.

  2. I just finished “Z” the novel about Zelda Fitzgerald and I can’t wait to reread the Great Gatsby. Knowing a little bit more about their lives makes the story better for me, even though they had a difficult time.

  3. My favorite is The Great Gatsby!

  4. My fav by him is a short story you may have heard of – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

  5. Fav quote – “I want to know you moved and breathed in the same world with me.”

  6. I’m a Gatsby fan! :)

  7. Gatsby is the only Fitzgerald book I’ve ever read, so I’ll say it’s my fave. :)

  8. I have read Tender is the Night, but no doubt about it, Gatsby is my fav.

  9. Is The Offshore Pirate about pirates?! I might love that one…or at least like it.

  10. I’m sad, I’ve only read Gatsby. Do you hate me? :)

  11. favorite fitzgerald: gatsby. favorite character: gatsby.

  12. Looking forward to reading more Fitzgerald. Re-reading Gatsby for the first time in 25 years:)

  13. I mean, I know Gatsby is not really a romantic *comedy*, but if it were, Nick Carraway = Nick from “The New Girl”? Eh? Maybe? I could picture it.

    • Haven’t seen The New Girl — so I can’t say. I’m intrigued by the romantic comedy idea of Gatsby, though… Hrm…

  14. Gatsby, but I need more Fitzgerald in my life!

  15. For the pure over-the-top excess and tragedy, Gatsby is fabulous. However, the heartwrenchingly tragic “Tender is the Night” rates very highly in my, uh, book!

  16. Why Gatsby is, of course!

  17. My favorite Fitzgerald book is The Great Gatsby.

  18. I wish I could say that I’ve read more Fitzgerald than just Gatsby, but alas — Gatsby is the winner by default :)

  19. I’m in the same boat as Talia. Haven’t read other Fitzgerald, but after rereading The Great Gatsby, I want to read more of his works.

  20. Gatsby of course!

  21. I love this give-away! My favorite Gatsby character is…Gatsby

  22. I love those prints! There’s a great Tolstoy one from Anna Karenina, and also a nice T.S. Eliot one from J. Alfred Prufrock.

  23. “He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”

  24. I love Gatsby!

  25. “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
    The Great Gatsby

  26. I have to confess that I had to look up “other” books to answer this question. I’ve read The Great Gatsby and enjoyed it. I was also reminded of Bernice Bobs Her Hair, another of his stories I enjoyed.
