The Creative Review blog featured a short interview with Adrian Tomine, last week.
From his earliest work on Optic Nerve, Tomine's delicate linework was always strongly graphic, so it's no surprise that he has to become a regular illustrator for The New Yorker.
Tomine says little in his interviews. I read a really long interview with him in The Comics Journal, ten years ago, which revealed about as much as this one. Tomine lets his artwork do the talking.
