Tomi Lahdesmaki, also known as the Outer One, is an illustrator based in San Francisco. His print work is a multi-media mix of collage, photo montage, fantasy, poetry, mythology and good old rock and roll. Lahdesmaki has done design and illustration for Rockpile magazine as well as various other publications. Although Lahdesmaki’s work is clearly of the moment, there is an air of the old-fashioned about some of his pieces that draw the viewer to worlds far from the nightspots for which he sometimes illustrates. An eclectic, and fascinating, collection.
