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. :)

  • 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.

  • Joeri

    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 :)

  • 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.

  • neil

    correct

  • ray jay

    yeah it toatally does look like Kate Winslett and Jennifer Connelly.
    good stuff
