Tomer Hanuka and the Classics

Tomer Hanuka is an Israeli-born, London-based illustrator and comics artist whose work has started turning up on the covers of some classic books. Most recently, he did the covers for Vintage's two John O'Hara reprints...

On Hanuka's fascinating blog, he discusses his various assignments and shows the various stages involved in their creations. Here are some preliminary sketches for the O'Hara covers.

He also produced the sinister cover for the Penguin Graphic Classics edition of the Marquis de Sade's Philosophy in the Boudoir.

Here is a preliminary sketch for that cover...

..and here is the full, final artwork (click for bigger).

Finally, here is a piece Hanuka has done to illustrate an article about Cormac McCarthy's superb end-of-the-world novel The Road.

More soon, including more apocalyptica.
