Adrian Tomine is on tour
to promote New York Drawings
, his anthology of New Yorker
illustrations. He'll be in Providence, RI tonight, and Cambridge, MA tomorrow. Peggy Burns of Drawn & Quarterly, Adrian's publisher, says:
The Providence Phoenix spotlights Adriane event at AS 220 tonight, with Ada Books. And the Boston DIG interviews Adrian in a lengthy interview here.
Favorite tidbit from the interview...
CLAY FERNALD: Were you the first of your friends to get published and get attention for your work? Optic Nerve put you on the map as a young man.
ADRIAN TOMINE: You assume that I had friends! I actually started doing Optic Nerve in response to being an unlikeable teenage loner, so it wasn’t like I was part of some cartooning community then. And when I did eventually make some friends in the comics world, they were basically already seasoned veterans, so any little accomplishment I might’ve experienced wasn’t anything new to them.
The interview also included a link to a fan-made film based on on of Adriane's stories, "Smoke."
