Adrian Tomine

Adrian Tomine

Presenting the very distinctive work of Adrian Tomine. Born in 1974, California, Mr. Tomine started creating and publishing comics whilst he was still in his teens. He distributed his self-published mini-comic, Optic Nerve, to the local comics shops. Nowadays Drawn and Quarterly have taken over Mr. Tomine’s publishing and distribution, leaving him more time to create comics and The New Yorker covers.

Adrian Tomine style combines clear line work with solid colour and little to no texture. There is a beautiful stillness to his illustrations; harmonious pallet, balanced composition, often eye-level. Tomine’s illustrations feel personal, as if they are family snapshots, which I find especially true of his cover work.

Be sure to check out more of his work on his website.
