DRAWING IS PUTTING A LINE AROUND DESIRE
Tom’s world was populated by cowboys, mechanics, cops, punks and thugs – all indulging their desires with great camaraderie and without quilt or prejudice. This book assembles a cross-section of these characters as dreamt up by Tom in rough sketches or more carefully executed studies. The format of a sketchbook lets the viewer take an intimate glance over the artist’s shoulder and share in his exuberant joie de vivre.
