New York Drawings

Adrian Tomine

A COLLECTION OF ILLUSTRATIONS FROM THE NEW YORKER COVER ARTIST AND AWARD-WINNING CARTOONIST

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.

SuicideGirls Team with Bubble Punch and Meltdown to Transform American Apparel Fashion Basics Into Striking Cosplay Outfits For SG’s Comic-Con Crew

Suicide Girls love getting dressed up almost as much as they like taking their clothes off. San Diego’s monster Comic-Con event is therefore a major highlight on their calendar each year, since it’s an excuse to play dress up.

This year they’re cooking up an extra-special Comic Con cosplay wardrobe, with a little help from clothing manufacturer and retailer American Apparel, pop-culture event planners Bubble Punch, and fave Sunset Strip geek emporium, Meltdown Comics.

Comic chic chicks Chubby Bunny and Yume Ninja of Bubble Punch will be designing a series of three different sexy cosplay themed outfits for SG ladies to wear while they man their Comic-Con booth. Each of the outfits will be made using basics available at your local American Apparel store. We’ll also be producing “How To” videos with the help of  Meltdown so you can recreate the costumes the Suicide Girls will be wearing to Comic Con at home.

The three “How to” videos – one for each SG cosplay costume – will be posted on Suicide Girls’ Facebook page in June. The costumes will then be debuted live at a special Pre-Comic Con party to be held at Meltdown Comics on July 7th. Follow @SuicideGirls on Twitter for up to the minute news, updates, and photos.

The First Monograph on the Celebrated Cartoonist

The Art of Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist Edited by Alvin Buenaventura Designed by Jonathan Bennett Interview by Kristine McKenna Introduction by George Meyer Essays by Chip Kidd, Susan Miller, Ken Parille, Ray Pride, and Chris Ware 

“Clowes has explored the tedium and mystery of contemporary American life with more wit and insight than most novelists or filmmakers.” —New York Times

 “A master storyteller and artist. There is poetry in every panel.”—Esquire

“The country’s premier underground cartoonist.” —Newsweek

Throughout his twenty-five-year career, Daniel Clowes has always been ahead of artistic and cultural movements. In the late 1980s and 1990s his ground breaking comic-book series Eightball defined the indie aesthetic of alternative comics, with wit, venom, and even a little sympathy. His breakthrough success, Ghost World, convinced mainstream readers of comics’ literary potential. In the new millennium, with works such as Ice HavenWilsonMister Wonderful, and The Death-Ray, Clowes has redefined the graphic novel as an art form. Continue reading »
