Back in 96′, I had it all figured out.

An animated storyboard from the Joyous Haggadah.

My great good friend, Larry Frost, recently died . Instead of writing about him , I drew about him.



Enough already with these candidates! Here’s my nominee. Join the movement . Pass it on.

Before the Internet and cheap international phone calls, I designed and art directed  by fax a version of  the Story of Esther, in plastilina, produced in Tel Aviv  and distributed in Russia.

I worked at the studio in Tel Aviv and was familiar with the artists there.  I had made other projects with them  and trusted their abilities and craftsmanship. Nevertheless I had to write out all the directions and make each drawing as accurate as I could since  I couldn’t oversee the making of the models, be on set, or look through the camera.

The final pictures and story were beautifully printed on one long sheet of vellum and rolled into a  scroll with a gold cover. Ten thousand were shipped off to Russia.

Is there any one out there who remembers receiving one of these Megillat Esther?

These were illustrations that I did for Hadassah Magazine about the mating habits of modern Jews. I thought they were appropriate for Valentine’s Day.


In honor of Popeye’s first appearance in Segar’s Thimble Theatre comic strip on January 17, 1929, here is a drawing I did for Culinary Notes, in the Jerusalem Post. I assume it had something to do with babies and spinach.

You can have as many “Latkes” as you want. Just click on the cover.


A great gift all year round. Click on the picture and check it out!
