After months of work it’s finally here: my first ever book!
The story tells of a day in the life of Liat, an Israeli pro-Palestinian activist. By following her political convictions she positions herself outside of mainstream society, a fact which is heightened when she is confronted by her own family`s political views.
As my book is almost finished the kind folks at Le Space are exhibiting prints of the book in their space. This coming Sunday they are holding a Palestinian Poetry event with interesting speakers and a choir I feel very lucky to have my work be part of such an evening. The work will continue to hang there for a while so if you’re in the area come by and check it out!
A date for the finissage will be announced soon.

It started out as a new year’s thing but got somewhat out of hand. Making postcards (and sending them!) is pure fun. For more go here!
I reponded to a callout for a publication under this theme. Here’s what came out:
As part of a project on WW2 I chose to tell the story of Sarah Goldberg, a tough, strong, brave resistance fighter. Presenting: a few memorable moments in her life. Go Sarah!
“Can We Call It Apartheid Now?”, a personal-critical-political story can now be read on Drawing the Times.
This piece is the first in a series exploring different aspects of the day to day reality taking place in Palestine-Israel.
On June 4+5 I’ll be happily sitting behind my table selling my comix at the Small Press Beurs of the Stripdagen Haarlem! I have a couple of new pieces which will debut there and for my own entertainment (and for the people visiting of course) I will be making buttons on the spot.
