posted: July 17, 2007

In Israel more soldiers or ex-soldiers are requesting help for emotional problems due to a war related episode. A special army unit headed by Dr Ofir Levy treats and helps anybody who is experiencing PTSD and approaches them for help.

posted: June 13, 2007

I love working with Richard Turley from the G2 section of The Guardian. First of all because he sounds like Hugh Grant so I feel like I'm in The Diary of Bridget Jones. But even better, he always has ideas that push me into doing things I wouldn't be doing otherwise.

After having being empty for some years it was renovated as a Cultural Center 13 years ago. The building houses the National Gallery and the Children Museum.

posted: January 31, 2007

The Golem is a story I have been playing with for some years now since Dalit Lev my editor in Am Oved, Israel, suggested I llustrate it. The original legend seemed so dark and sad and violent that I had an immediate urge to slightly change it. (as a matter of fact there isn't really AN original Golem story but many many versions so what the hell..one more coming)
What I really like about the subject is that it is about  'dead matter coming to life through magic...'  well..isn't that what happens when we do a good collage?
