The New Yorker


New York Drawings 

Adrian Tomine

I love The New Yorker's (the magazine) illustration artists. We just got a new book about The New Yorker illustrations in the library, which I work at (did I mention I work in a public library?), so I had to take some pictures and post it here. It is so inspiring, I practice my illustration techniques by copying the image from the book or from The New Yorker magazine.


love the fall

“Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”
― Jane Austen, Persuasion

I was reading Persuasion again! Loved the quote about autumn; but fall is my favorite season, it makes me more energetic and more creative. I found a few red leaves on Sunday (still a bit early for leaves to fall on the ground) and it inspired me to do this little artwork.
