Add To Cart

Tommy’s new book All My Photographs Are Made With Pens follows the international success of his first book, An Excuse to Draw. As the title suggests, Tommy approaches scenes with a photographic eye but renders them in this trademark detailed drawing style.

The subjects are wide ranging – including wildlife, models, travel and movie sets – and feature his characteristic charm and wit, with the astonishing level of detail he is known for.

In a style at times reminiscent of cartoonists like Robert Crumb yet always wholly his own, Tommy Kane presents his subjects with a mixture of surrealism, humour and thoughtfulness. No matter where Tommy points his camera, you cannot help but marvel at the intricacies of his craft.

About the artist

Tommy Kane has worked as a creative director in advertising for over 35 years. Over that time he has cultivated a very particular obsession with squirrels and a catharsis in documenting his surroundings in his sketchbooks with his humble weapon of choice – the Uni-ball Vision Fine Point pen.
