“Adrian Tomine arrives in New York, and we suddenly remember why we all love living in the Big City––whatever the hassles may be. Tomine’s wit is as sharp as his heart is tender, and we relish his portrait of the city–– intellectually stimulating but also emotionally and esthetically rewarding. A must for all New Yorkers–and all New Yorkers at heart.”–Francoise Mouly, art editor, The New Yorker; Editorial Director, TOON Books
Two strangers, both reading the same novel, share a fleeting glance between passing subway cars. A bookstore owner locks eyes with a neighbor as she receives an Amazon package. Strangers are united by circumstance as they wait on the subway stairs for a summer storm to pass.
Adrian Tomine’s illustrations and comics have appeared for more than a decade in the pages (and on the cover) of The New Yorker. Instantly recognizable for their deceptively simple and evocative style, these images have garnered the attention of the New Yorker’s readership and the approbation of such venerable institutions as the Art Directors Club and American Illustration.
NEW YORK DRAWINGS is a loving homage to the city that Tomine, a West Coast transplant, has called home for the past seven years. This lavish, beautifully designed volume collects every cover, comic, and illustration that he has produced for The New Yorker to date, along with an assortment of other rare and uncollected illustrations and sketches inspired by the city. Complete with notes and annotations by the author, NEW YORK DRAWINGS will also feature a new introductory comic focusing on Tomine’s experiences as a New York illustrator.
