Koren Shadmi is an illustrator and comics artist whose clients include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, BusinessWeek, the Village Voice, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Wired, Spin and Random House, among others.
Shadmi is originally from Israel; he moved to New York to study at the School of Visual Arts and is now based in Brooklyn, which he suggests might be the center of the world in his new watercolor drawing, View of the World from Bedford Avenue (above, top with detail), a homage to Saul Steinberg’s iconic New Yorker cover in which he framed the New York centric view (and by extension, the way we all perceive our surroundings, near and far).
His website also includes portfolios of his editorial illustrations, covers and personal work. (When viewing he galleries note that there is often more than one page in a given section.) In addition he has a portfolio on Behance Network.
Shadmi is also an author of short stories as well as comics, of which several collections have been published. You can read his comic story, The Abaddon (above, bottom) online and an interview about same on Robot 6.
