He would be Gertrude. Or, at least that is my take. Gertrude’s dark personality is so fun to work with One of my favourite parts of creating these sketches is researching my book shelves for works that would inspire a character like Gertrude, and then finding a way to drop these into the frames where they are best suited.
Literary buffs and should pay attention to the details – that bookshelf is loaded!

She’s that girl that everyone knows: fashionable and cool with a love for all things vintage. She’s smart, edgy and little dark. Gertrude is the star of the Gertrude’s Melancholia collection: a series of art prints designed to tell a story. Each print features one frame of the Gertrude’s Melancholia series. These prints are truly unique, pick one, three, or the entire series.
I have them arranged throughout my home, so the story travels with me as I move from room to room.
