Adrian Tomine in Providence Tonight

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Brattle Theater in Cambridge.

Thursday night, Adrian's at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge, sponsored by the Harvard Bookstore. Last night, he addressed a SRO crowd at the Librairie Drawn and Quarterly.

It was the first time I had seen Adrian's slide show for Shortcomings. All I can say is, do not miss this slide show. I know, I know, I'm his publicist, but the slide show is charming, funny, reflective, and self-critical. It provides a stripped-down view into his process as an artist--from the way he constructs a page to how he tries to learn from his critics, peers, heroes and himself; a balance of self-deprecation without false modesty.

He also gives a special shout-out to Marcie of Peanuts. Why? Well, you'll just have to catch him in Cambridge, Providence, or DC to find out.

Adrian's East Coast Tour Starts Today!

Blogs like this one, the weeklies The Hour and Montreal Mirror, the McGill Daily, are all excited for Adrian's event tonight at the Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, which I believe is Adrian's first event in Montreal...I'll have to double check with the Chief. Event starts at 7: 00 PM, 211 Bernard Ouest.

On Thursday, Adrian is in Cambridge at the Brattle Theater sponsored by Harvard Bookstore, on Friday in Providence at the RISD Auditorium sponsored by the RISD depts of Illustration and Continuing Ed, and next Wednesday March 5th in Washington DC at Politics & Prose. Don't miss his slide show, and I feel reasonably confident in stating that unless there is a festival in his backyard, these are his last appearances for awhile.

Also, here is Adrian's cover, Shelf Life from last week's New Yorker at a much better resolution.
