Adrian Tomine signs at Harvard Book Store on Thursday October 4, 2012 at 7:00 PM!
Harvard Book Store welcomes cartoonist and illustrator ADRIAN TOMINE for a discussion of his latest book, New York Drawings.
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 been appearing 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.

APE Swings in to San Francisco this Weekend
The comics centric event features a stellar guest list, programming, free shuttle bus service
San Francisco – The Alternative Press Expo (APE), the country’s largest alternative and independent comics convention, arrives in San Francisco this weekend, October 1–2, for what promises to be one of the most exciting events to date. Every year APE boasts an impressive guest list, and this year’s lineup is no exception. Special guests appearing include award-winning cartoonists Shannon Wheeler, Kate Beaton, Daniel Clowes, and Adrian Tomine. APE is held at the Concourse Exhibition Center, 635 8th Street in San Francisco.
Additional special guests include Matthew Thurber, whose book 1-800 MICE makes its West Coast premiere at the event. The new book is a collection of the critically acclaimed first five issues of Thurber’s comic book series, with 64 pages of new material. And special guest Craig Thompson also makes a long-anticipated return to the graphic novel medium with his new book Habibi debuting this week. Habibi marks seven years since Thompson’s Blankets, which won numerous industry honors in 2004, including two Eisner Awards.
“We are excited to have such inspiring and accomplished guests at APE this year,” said David Glanzer, APE spokesperson and director of marketing and public relations for parent company Comic-Con International.
In addition to the impressive guest list, APE features two full days of comics programs geared around the show’s special guests and various aspects of independent and alternative comics. These programs promise to be fun, informative, and enlightening conversations with some of the top creative talent working in comics today. And if that were not enough, APE also offers a fascinating, and informative group of hands-on workshops covering everything from comics writing to world building, self-publishing, and bookbinding.
This year APE introduces its first-ever free courtesy shuttle bus service. Attendees can travel from Caltrain, BART, and the San Francisco Centre shopping mall and food court to the Concourse Exhibition Center, with a shuttle leaving every half-hour. Click here for schedules and locations.
Advance tickets for APE are $10.00 single day, $15.00 both days and can be purchased by clicking here.

The Expo, taking place Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2, will again feature the expanded Exhibit Hall and additional programming tracks that debuted in 2010.
Five special guests have already signed on for the show: Kate Beaton (Hark!

Adrian Tomine signs on February 9th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM.
A loose, cartoony departure from Tomine’s previous work, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a sweet-natured, laugh out-loud skewering of the modern marriage process, including hiring a DJ, location scouting, trips to the salon, suit fittings, dance lessons, registering for gifts, and managing familial demands. The most personal and autobiographical work of Tomine’s career, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a charming, delightful token of love.
