asaf :: on the occasion of the 59th israeli independence-day a local daily newspaper proposed 6 illustrators to provide an image under the title "what happened to us?".
I had couple of different ideas but decided to go with this illustration of Srulik, an old israeli icon.
Srulik was created by israeli cartoonist Dosh (Kariel Gardosh, 1921-2000) around 1956 and representated everything good about what young israel wanted to believe she is made of - idealism, zionism, good faith and kindness.
on a different note, I was informed by my publisher Jeff Mason that Pizzeria Kamikaze has been nominated for an Eisnar Award this year, under : Best U.S. Edition of International Material.
