My TCAF Treasures, Part 2: Artwork & Story by Kenan Rubenstein …
Kenan’s illustration style and colour work in his book “Last Train To Old Town” is really wonderful. So wonderful, in fact, that it got him a MoCCA Arts Festival Award of Excellence this year!
The book is really cool as each pair of pages has its own colour palette … where, while colour palette’s change through the book, they maintain harmonious tonality and transitions for the book as a whole.
It was great to chat with Kenan and talk Brooklyn (where he lives and where I try to visit to see friends there whenever I can).
I also really liked how he signed each book with a book plate on the inside cover, with my name and (roughly) what I do.
Kenan also had these great folded page mini-comics, that you unfolded from their compact form, revealing the next set of panels on each unfold.
