Sketches, thoughts, and comics from the artist of Skim
Jillian Tamaki has taken the visual world by storm. A sought-after illustrator, she has racked up accolades and awards from the Society of Illustrators and Society of Publication Designers, and has a client list that includes The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Esquire . Her breathtaking talent was further established with the debut of the graphic novel Skim -selected by The NewYork Times as a Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2008-which was written by her cousin Mariko Tamaki, and drawn with moody black-and-white nuance by Tamaki. Skim completely reinvented the young adult graphic novel genre with an utterly original and sincere portrait of being a teenage outsider.
Indoor Voice collects pen, brush, ink, watercolor, and collage experiments that show how Tamaki arrives at her illustration work, as well as more polished and personal comics work examining her relationship to her parents and their influence on her art.
