Little White Lies Issue 82
|Publisher Names||by TCO London|
We’ve long worshipped at the altar of Adam Sandler. All the way back in 2013 our esteemed editor David Jenkins gave a presentation entitled ‘The Cinema of Adam Sandler’ at London’s ICA, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before we managed to find an excuse to get the Sandman on the cover of our magazine.
Luckily for us, New York filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie are also Sandler fans, and in casting him in their excellent fifth feature, Uncut Gems, they provided us with a perfect opportunity to boldly go where LWLies has never gone before…
On the cover…
We’re thrilled to be working with Brighton-based artist Tavan Maneetapho again, who’s previously illustrated for Little White Lies. This is her first cover for us. She says of her own style:
“The characters in my universe are usually the misfits in society – the daydreamer, the loner, the one that laughs just a little too loud. I create work with the hope to touch and to affect feelings that aren’t necessarily on the surface, sometimes juxtaposing sadness with humour.”
