In an era rife with listicles and churn-and- burn graphics, TENS manages to hit that rare sweet spot of being able to reel you in, without sacrificing craftsmanship, depth and detail. Belgian-based illustrator Tom De Geeter brings us a fresh new take on the Top Ten List, with a thoughtfully- curated lineup of contributors, all set to a backdrop of his bold yet delicate line drawings.
TENS' open-format categories — think sitcoms, philosophers and hockey goons alike — shed light on each featured artist's personality, and touch upon themes of nostalgia, humor, inspiration and camp. The result is a compelling and remarkably-crafted anthology worthy of a home upon the most discerning of coffee tables.
Tom De Geeter is an illustrator, musician, and graphic designer based in Kortrijk, Belgium. Over the past two decades, he has become known for bringing his unique visual aesthetic to a long catalog of musical projects, including Zucchini Drive, Speed Dial 7, and his independent label Marathon of Dope. He has an undying passion for bringing people together in the spirit of creation, and pouring metaphysical gasoline over the sparks of his many cross-continental collaborators. De Geeter oscillates naturally between his loves for music production, sketching, and animating.
