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.
whoa, these illustrations are rad! I like the bicycles a lot.. but alife store with the dunkles is also there haha.. so dope, how adrian has the kid focusing so much on the features of the shoe too; as a true head.
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.
hah i agree on the sneakerhead illustration. i spent many months trying to find those dunks in my size. great stuff.
Nice. Lovely linework and muted palette.
CNG you’re right, the dunkle was SB.
Correct me if i’m wrong, but on the first picture the girls look very much like Kate Winslett and Jennifer Connelly.
i have most of his comics
yas is back!
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.
yeah it toatally does look like Kate Winslett and Jennifer Connelly.
