Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Length: 0:57 Mins
Tomer Hanuka was born in Israel, studied art and lives in USA.

It's hard to miss the bright pink clothed cover on any bookshelf. The book is a large format 104-page hardcover. Overkill collects mainly his commercial works with a handful of personal pieces. He has done work for Playboy magazine so there are some sex themed illustrations included.

His illustrations are highly imaginative, at times psychedelic. Most revolve around dark subject matter. The first illustration in the book shows an old baby something being born out of someone's mouth.

Many of his work feature strong juxtaposition, either through imagery or the use of colours. His colour palette is quite arresting, particularly for pieces that use strong complementary colours. He doesn't use much gradient for his colours so they look very manga style. I had actually thought he was a Japanese artist because of his colouring. And his composition is masterful.

Also available is a limited edition of the book with a slipcase and an A4 print of a girl with a giant lizard. You can get that at Upperplayground website.

This is a great art book. You can check out more work on his website.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I would recommend this book to any artist looking to get a grasp on composition. Tomer is the master craftsman when is comes to composing a picture. Oh yeah...and his color choices are bold and right on the money.

Tomer's work is build upon very strong and sensitive draughting abilities, coupled with intelligently designed color choices, and this book translates those qualities superbly. The print and build quality is fantastic, the colors are vivid and the reproductions are what you would expect from a far more expensive book. Easy, easy buy for any fan of good drawing, good composition, good illustration. For the price it's a no-brainer. Buy it!

I'm a big fan of large format books and Tomer's "Overkill" is great. To see the real detail of digital work is nice especially in this gem.

Tomer Hanuka's artworks are all incredibly gorgeous. Composition and lighting hit the mark in so many of the images included in Overkill, and you can feel the story in each illustration.

On the technical side: the hardcover is very nice and won't easily take damage, the paper is everything is printed on is good and the images are printed clearly on it. The images take up as much space as they can on each page, so space is used to it's fullest potential. At the back, there are a couple pages with all the artworks as thumbnails and the title, year, and publication it was used in which is really nice.
