You were bigger, brighter and whiter than snow
Screamed at the make believe, screamed at the sky
And you finally found all your courage to let it all go
(Pictures of You / The Cure)
Yesterday evening was the launching event of the first Untitled Object issue. I wasn’t there but my sources tell me it was really great. Were you there?
Anyway, now I can finally share with you the drawing I did for that issue. We all had to create work that had some relation to the concept of “The First Day”.
I wanted to talk about my new found (and often lost) braveness, and also work with Hebrew typography for a change*. Lou Reed knows what I’m talking about:
I have a few issues of the Untitled Object to give away, so if you want one, write me a message and I’ll send you a copy in an envelope and everything :).
*Translation: At the age of three and thirty I stopped being afraid.
After 3 days in bed down with the flu, I realized once again, that Hell is being stuck alone in your own head. It came to a point I was reluctant to fall asleep not knowing what kind of bullshit trauma from 20 years ago I’ll have to confront next.
Here’s a song to celebrate good health regained ↓We Can’t Be Beat by The Walkmen↓.
