Product Description

Compressed visual narratives are Tomer Hanuka's stock-in-trade. He s an illustrator by occupation, but his book covers, comics and editorial renderings transcend that title. In Overkill, he's selected some of his most vividly drawn and intensely colorful work, juxtaposing intense imagery with a truly unique palette. Hanuka is the winner of gold medals from the Society of Illustrators and the Society of Publication designers, and has been featured in numerous magazines. In 2008, a book cover he created won the British Design Museum award as part of the Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions. His image was used for the cover of the bestselling survey Juxtapoz Illustration. Not to be contained by the print medium, this versatile artist also contributed art to the Oscar nominated, Golden Globe winning animated documentary Waltz With Bashir. Tomer Hanuka lives in New York.

By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Dec 15 2011
Format: Hardcover
Length: 0:57 Mins
Tomer Hanuka was born in Israel, studied art and lives in USA.

It's hard to miss the bright pink clothed cover on any bookshelf. The book is a large format 104-page hardcover. Overkill collects mainly his commercial works with a handful of personal pieces. He has done work for Playboy magazine so there are some sex themed illustrations included.

His illustrations are highly imaginative, at times psychedelic. Most revolve around dark subject matter. The first illustration in the book shows an old baby something being born out of someone's mouth.

Many of his work feature strong juxtaposition, either through imagery or the use of colours. His colour palette is quite arresting, particularly for pieces that use strong complementary colours. He doesn't use much gradient for his colours so they look very manga style. I had actually thought he was a Japanese artist because of his colouring. And his composition is masterful.

Also available is a limited edition of the book with a slipcase and an A4 print of a girl with a giant lizard. You can get that at Upperplayground website.

This is a great art book. You can check out more work on his website.

An Artist's artist!!!!! April 6 2012
By B. Cheshire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book to any artist looking to get a grasp on composition. Tomer is the master craftsman when is comes to composing a picture. Oh yeah...and his color choices are bold and right on the money.

Luscious!!! Feb. 3 2012
By Nicolas Uribe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Tomer's work is build upon very strong and sensitive draughting abilities, coupled with intelligently designed color choices, and this book translates those qualities superbly. The print and build quality is fantastic, the colors are vivid and the reproductions are what you would expect from a far more expensive book. Easy, easy buy for any fan of good drawing, good composition, good illustration. For the price it's a no-brainer. Buy it!

I'm a big fan of large format books and Tomer's "Overkill" is great. To see the real detail of digital work is nice especially in this gem.
