Adam Turnbull: Ten Cent Dime

While some take to Twitter to share their stream of consciousness experience of the world, Adam Turnbull has used Ten Cent Dime as his outlet, a project for Adam to “illustrate my response to daily life, situations and people I come across here in New York,” alongside enjoyable written commentary. The project is in its second year and is both delightfully illustrated and consistently interesting.

Be sure to check out the rest of Adam’s portfolio and keep up with Ten Cent Dime by following the project on Tumblr.
