♥ “what matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.” ~gabriel garcia marquez



when i saw the work of famed illustrator olaf hajek on bonjour johanna
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?
