i was immediately reminded of the written work of one of my
favorite writers of all time, gabriel garcia marquez.
i am not sure why, exactly.
maybe it's the artist's use of saturated colors, his lush landscapes,
the life-like flora & fauna, the attention to detail mixed with the far-fetched,
something about it just screamed "magical realism!"
and then i read the description for the book of olaf hajek's latest work,
black antoinette, and it became clear that i wasn't imagining the connection :)
have you ever read anything by marquez? (if not, you should!)
and if so, do you agree with me?
