I think the thing that I love the most about the illustrations by Tomer Hanuka is how he takes a style that I like and packs in so much emotion. I really like hard-lined illustrations with a strong graphic quality. That kid of style, though, can look very cartoony, very fast. That’s one of the reasons I like it. Yet, I can’t help but like the way Hanuka twists that style on its head and makes it look like a painting. I’m always torn between focusing on completely illustrative work and trying something more artsy. I think Hanuka has achieved that balance.
