Adrian Tomine is one of the world's most acclaimed comics artists. He began publishing his own work at the age of 15, and his series Optic Nerve has run continuously since he was a teenager. His work often focuses on subtle, shifting relationships between young people, and his clean, striking art is broadly regarded as among the best in the field. He also regularly contributes illustrations to The New Yorker and other publications. His most recent book-length work is Shortcomings.
