The Best Poems
with
Lucy Ayub
This piece was commissioned for the "Outline" Exhibition in Jerusalem. This special project teams spoken-word poets with illustrators and visual artists.
I was challenged to create a visualisation for a poem, "The Best Poems", written and spoken by Lucy Ayub. 
Lucy spoke about relationships and the inspiration to create when your heart is broken - In the brink of emotional chaos, the creative hand writes.
It was a chance for me to create something fluid, full of questions and answers that I easily empathise with, both emotionally and conceptually. 
 
In the video below you can listen (Hebrew) to Lucy reading part of her poem with my illustration in the background.
