Adrian Tomine

I’m doing a bunch of research and development for our comic book project. It’s probably an overkill job for the actual content within the book itself, but one good link leads to another and I ended up on this wonderful comic book artist’s site:

Adrian Tomine

 I have seen some other comic books that try this style of coloring but I think what makes Adrian’s art compelling to me is that although there is a massive amount of simplification, all the necessary details are there. His R&D shines through, showing that he is a well studied artist. I mean you can’t draw these specifics without doing some research. Research is a kind of honesty that artists should have as opposed to drawing purely from the limit of one’s imagination.
