Adrian Tomine

Anyone who reads the New Yorker will be familiar with Adrian Tomine’s work. Love the sneakerhead illustration with the kid checking out the Unkle Dunks at Alife.

    He’s also a great writer, his graphic novels are brilliant.
    **Aren’t the dunkles SB? Don’t remember ever seeing any SB’s at A.R.C. :)

    Correct me if i’m wrong, but on the first picture the girls look very much like Kate Winslett and Jennifer Connelly.

    The second to last picture is a scene from the movie “Chungking Express.” The only reason I say this is because there is a scene where a girl named Faye (played by Faye Wong) is in a house playing with a toy airplane in rubber cleaning gloves.
