Moly-x-portrait

Moly-x is an international exchange started by Marty Harris, that brings artists from all over the planet together to exchange sketchbooks, art, stories, and friendship. Moleskine Sketchbook Portrait Party is an exchange of portraits. Each artist set off with a Moleskine in which they will draw their self-portrait. The book is then passed to the next artist who will add a self-portrait and a portrait of the book's owner. These exchanges are so fun, they causes you to interact, to influence and to be influenced by, to share, to make friends at huge distances.
Here is my entry to Chris' book. I don't really know how I've come to this image, maybe that's what Chris' cool photographs associate with for me.































Here are some more exchanges I participated at:

Abandoned teddy bear and the process of illustration

I wanted to share here an another process of creating an illustration. Every time I illustrate, I'm trying to keep in a final work the freshness and spontaneity of sketch, that done on location. The illustration was for the "street" column in internet magazine Hapinkas, series of a short stories about a little boy that explore streets around him.This one was about a teddy bear abandoned on a street. So I took my sketchbook and got out to look for a nice location for the story. I found it in one of the neighborhood's gardens - bench with sleeping cat surrounded by trees and buildings.
Then I've back to the studio and continued to work on the illustration, looking for the right character of the boy - the hero of the story.
Here is the final illustration:
Here is another one I did later for the same column - the boy continuing to explore the street and found the reflection of the blue bird in the puddle:

Purim street party

Here are some more Purim sketches, from street party at Tel Aviv. It was very crowded and noisy, but very special and with a lot of atmosphere! Hundreds of people in constant movement was very hard subject for sketching, but very exiting, as well!
