Tim Lane

My dad sent me an email last week and it read like this: Do you know Tim Lane, Alan Moore and Kazuichi Hanawa? Well, I don't know where it came from but I had to check out the two mystery names ofcourse. turns out I LOVE Tim Lane's work. He is an American illustrator and comicbook artist. His retro style and linework are great. It is like Charles Burns (who also inspires him) but less stiff. His drawings may not be perfect anatomically but he bends his characters in playfull and expressive ways. I am defenitely going after his books, they seem to have some sort of film-noir feel over them. On his blog he is posting a weekly comicseries called The Belligerent Piano. I haven't had the time to read it all yet, but it looks like my cup of tea. Great find dad!

  1. Hey, cool stuff! :) Always nice to find a new role model or someone who comes very close to ones own sensibilities. I especially like the last illustration in the set...!
