I hope you like my work. Besides for a lot of ink (RIP to many pens), the influence of a yeshiva background and many years living in Southeast Asia go into it.
I spent most of my childhood poring over the Torah and Talmud, lost in its stories, imagery, and narratives. Admittedly, I could also be found doodling in the margins of the pages. I especially loved the aura surrounding holidays, where I could really get down to business and draw dozens of Menorahs or pomegranates or megillas to celebrate the season without having my motives questioned.
Fast forward to later, when I became a scruffy lad enamored with the paradoxically austere, yet outlandish, art forms of Southeast Asia. So enamored that I just had to spend a few years in Indonesia. Javanese and Sundanese puppetry, Torajan funerary rites, Balinese masks, Batak architecture...their suggestiveness and detail blew my mind and impacted my work profoundly.
Fast forward to another nebulous time, and zoom in on the same guy who went onto Myanmar to explore more of the region. When suddenly BOOM: Covid. My trip was cut short. It took almost three full days to get back home, but I made it just in time for Passover. Being home again surrounded by matzah and potato starch, you can just imagine how palpable the inspiration was. ‘Twas the season to quarantine, and creating a detailed Nissan like the good ol’ days became a fun little project.
And then we fast forward to now, where I hope to continue creating Judaica along that same inspiration. It’s been an absolute joy to return to making this type of content, and again, I really hope you like it.
