An Excuse to DrawAn Excuse to Draw

Tommy Kane Draws the World

Published by Heni Publishing.

Perched on a little camping stool, artist Tommy Kane draws what he sees. His remarkable career has taken him around the world, and he has documented the people and places he’s encountered in his unique painting and drawing style—on location—wherever he goes. He calls New York home, but has a growing international following. An Excuse to Draw is the first book-length collection of Kane’s work, and it is filled with full-page illustrations and reproductions of pages taken from his sketch books.

Kane has worked in advertising as a creative director for more than thirty years. His style is inspired by comic artists like R. Crumb and James Jean, and by Mad Magazine—but his interpretations of the world are decidedly original. With a bag filled with pens and watercolors, Kane records the world as he travels, bringing readers along for the ride. Witty descriptions and observations accompany the hand-drawn, full-color illustrations found throughout the book. Beautifully produced and exquisitely designed, An Excuse to Draw is the perfect introduction to the world of Tommy Kane.



Tommy Kane is an illustrator and artist who has worked as a creative director in advertising for over thirty years. He lives in Brooklyn and is obsessed with squirrels.

Tommy Kane: All My Photographs Are Made with PensTommy Kane: All My Photographs Are Made with Pens

Published by HENI Publishing.

“My drawings and paintings are really just the photographs I would have taken if I were not obsessed with sketchbooks.” —Tommy Kane

Tommy Kane has worked as a creative director in advertising for over 30 years, during which time he has kept sketchbooks, documenting his surroundings with his humble weapon of choice—the Uni-ball Vision Fine Point—in a style he has described as a cross between Robert Crumb and James Jean with a large dose of MAD magazine thrown in.

An urban sketchbook by a virtuoso draughtsman, All My Photographs Are Made with Pens follows the international success of Kane's first book, An Excuse to Draw (2014). As the title suggests, Kane approaches scenes with a photographic eye but renders them in his trademark detailed drawing style. The subjects are wide-ranging—wildlife, models, travel and movie sets—but all vividly convey his characteristic charm and wit.

Born in Jamaica, Queens, Tommy Kane attended art school in Buffalo, before moving to New York. He has created print ads and television commercials for major corporations (among them Sony, Samsung, IBM and Barnes & Noble). Kane has also created one of the most memorable advertising campaigns of the last decade for Steve Madden (who has attributed the financial success of his company to Kane's work), and for Yellow Tail Wine (the most successful launch of a wine brand in US history).
