Hospital sketches

I spent almost all last week in the hospital with my son, who had an accident and got hurt at his hand. These sketches where done while waiting to him to get from the surgery - the only thing that helped me to calm down a bit. The surgery went well :)

friends came to visit
I don't recommend you to get to hospitals, but once you're there - there are plenty of stories and authentic characters to sketch. And sketching passes time in a best way :)
Take care!

Sketchcrawl at The Yemen Vineyard

At last Friday morning, sunny and cold, we met at the Yemen Vineyardfor for the sketchcrawl . I love this beautiful corner of Tel Aviv, full of nostalgic atmosphere, colorful characters, and authentic food. Everybody found there a lot of nice stories, and here are mine:
everything in pita at the corner of the Hacarmel market
the dog - the king of the street

humus "Shlomo & Doron"

two guys with strong gazes


Friday morning meeting of friends - they were happy to provide their names ;)
The time flied fast as ussual, and the sketchcrawl ended with a nice meal (of course!). Sorry, I didn't sketch the excellent soup and humus I had!

At "Beta and Grega"

Beta and Grega - is the name of the coffee shop at the corner of Alenbi and Levontin streets in Tel Aviv. This area of the south of the city is full of contrasts - beautiful renovated Bauhaus buildings and crumbling walls full of graffiti, trendy coffee shops full of celebs and beggars passing through.
As you can understand - perfect place for sketching and finding stories.
it was Nathan's last day with his new beard ;)
Cowboy in Tel Aviv



Sima - woman that lives at the street, everybody knows her, asked us to draw her
