Sketching inDnegev

It was a magic weekend at inDnegev - festival of indie music in the Negev desert. We, Urban Sketchers, also a kind of "indie" - not really mainstream, something between artists, illustrators and storytellers, so the connection was natural.  It was very fun for me  to sketch the festival, not just the concerts and the musicians, but the whole phenomenon around us, a kind of very undefined, but on the other hand, a very consolidated community of people gathered around the institution that called inDnegev.  The avant-garde sounds and the monotonous desert with the sandy wind blurring everything... Beyond that - the sketches speak for themselves, mostly about people I've seen around me.  It was great fun! my first sketch - trying to capture the athmosphere security guys are eating as well Night falls and everything looks different Many couples of lovers near the stage These three boys asked me to draw them and stood in front of me witho

Day in Jerusalem

Last week a I had errands in Jerusalem and was lucky to spend some time at Machane Yehuda Market. Visiting Jerusalem, which is only one hour drive from my house, always feels to me visiting very far land. This city is not like any place, it has so many levels in any aspect, so each time I touch it, it feels like a magic, something I will never get to know, but it always will magnet me. I think I can seat and absorb its citizens for a hours, but at some level I feel pity not trying to capture them in my sketchbook. So I did, sitting at one of the pubs in the middle of the market. people are buying food for the holidays  I love to sketch Hassidim in their fur hats it's tradition to eat (and sleep) in nicely decorated Sukkah (kind of tent) during the Sukkot holidays
