ADT Projects

Adam Douglas Thompson is an artist, illustrator, designer, and teacher. He creates thousands of diagrammatic drawings that form an endless library of visual imaginings. Adam's drawings are at turns funny, bizarre, philosophical, and beautiful, touching on a vast array of themes and topics. His work has been exhibited at Untitled Art Fair, Auxiliary Projects, Regina Rex, the Cairo Video Festival, and the Boston Center for the Arts, among many other venues, and he is a recipient of the 2014 ArtSlant Prize. A book of 100 of his drawings, titled #1359-1458, was published by Regency Arts Press, Ltd. (2010), and his drawings have been featured in magazines including Electric Literature and The Believer.  

Adam recently developed and illustrated a deck of "conceptual playing cards" called FINELINE for the design company ADT Projects.  He is also an animator, and has created video art installations as well as book trailers for novels. He was recently commissioned to create a series of 140 drawings on the themes of technology and business for the offices of Kargo Mobile. Adam teaches design at several New York City universities, including Brooklyn College and the Pratt Institute. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, writer Helen Phillips, and their children.
