  10. I bought this issue strictly for the cover. What's funny is that I knew this was your work even though I've never been a big follower of what you do. After reading this interview and viewing your online portfolio, I must say that I am now a big fan of yours.

    Thanks for shining some light on your personal life and a big thank you for the inspiration that I desperately needed.

    You are a truly gifted artist!

  11. Just picked up the issue, nice work. Was wondering what you thought of showing linework in images, as in do you think it is okay to show heavy linework in a painting or does it break the illusion of depth too much?

  13. Tomer: I read your interview in Juxtapoz and have to say I love your quote about just being published isn't enough - that something exciting has to happen on the drawing board or else why draw. Defintely can relate to that. Love the pieces you have in that issue too.

  15. Fantastic artwork Tomer. Love the line, the composition, the color, the light.
    All both poetic and striking.

  16. Tomer-

    I have been greatly inspired by your work ever since I had to do a research paper on illustrators for class, (You were one of the illustrators I covered.) The new Juxtapoz cover is beautiful and I immediately recognize the Htoo twins (If I am not mistaken.) I am happy to see your work in this magazine, as it's one of the only art magazines I think exposes some great artists. I will pick up this magazine a.s.a.p.

    keep up the great work and I can't wait to see more.

    Brice

    Great work! I saw this one on the shelves of Borders and literally ran over to it.

    Last one.

    might frame it. Love you work!

  25. I picked this up over Christmas and loved every bit of it. I was also just assigned (not two minutes ago) to report on you in my illustration class where they're assigning everyone illustrators to research. Don't suppose you have a bio written up anywhere that goes a into depth about your inspirations, who's inspired by you, who you've worked for, your life, and that sort of thing? Heh, that sounds so creepy. I wonder how I'd feel if people did reports on me.
