Jean-Léon Gérôme (11 May 1824 – 10 January 1904) was a French painter and sculptor in the style now known as Academicism. The range of his oeuvre included historical painting, Greek mythology, Orientalism, portraits and other subjects, bringing the Academic painting tradition to an artistic climax.

Tomer Hanuka illustrations and Un-Men Vertigo comics series covers. A new Tomer Hanuka book Overkill has been recently published. Also I recommend the comics collection Placebo Man, collecting Tomer's short stories from Bipolar magazine. Bipolar was a comic he did with his twin brother Asaf Hanuka, a brilliant illustrator in his own right. I hear they are planning to do comics together in the newar future again.
