ADRIAN TOMINE – SHORTCOMINGS *Release Party
BookCourt- 163 Court Street Brooklyn
PS: More Adrian Tomine interviewing at Gothamist:
Having lived and worked on both coasts now, what do you think is the biggest difference between being an artist in California versus New York?
The humidity. I really love New York, but I have to say, the humidity during the summer is a nightmare for a cartoonist. Not only am I sweating in my studio, my bristol board is curling up, the drafting tape is peeling off the board, my Rapidograph pens bleed the minute I put them to paper…it’s a disaster. And these are issue that I never once faced in Berkeley.
I know you were probably hoping for a more profound answer, but aside from little things like the weather, my work process and atmosphere is pretty much unchanged. When I’m sitting at my drafting table in my studio, I could really be anywhere.
